The primary colors are a feast for my eyes. As they say on TV decorating programs, “The bright colors will pop against the backgrounds.” These reds do jump out and grab you.
Red Yuccas are native to Central and West Texas. They flower from late spring through early autumn.
Not only are they pretty, but yuccas are hardy and extremely drought tolerant. Plus they survive freezing temperatures. The flower stalk dies, leaving a striking skeletal shape with large seed pods opened like a flower for the winter. Red Yuccas are one care free plant. In recent years, they are the hot new item in landscaping. It’s like they’ve just been discovered.
Okay. I did say that I was definitely not going to keep the Poinsettias after January. But they just keep surviving. While they are still red, how could I trash them? Let’s see how long they last outside and in the heat.
Sometimes it’s hard to choose one’s favorite color of flowers. But you don’t have to. I love red ones, yellow ones, purple ones, etc.
