Hesperaloe parviflora

‘Weeping form’
AGAVACEAE, The Agave family

Another lovely little find from the field trip yesterday. It does not look hardy – it looks totally Southern California. But it’s durable to USDA zone 6. The spiky blue-green leaves grow to 3 or 4 feet, and the flower stalk can shoot up another few feet, to dangle pinky-orange flowers. Can’t imagine the hummers not loving that.

I love my work as a landscape designer and artist. When I'm not planning homesteads or working in the studio, you'll find me hiking, photographing, gardening, baking, cooking vegetarian meals with friends, reading and working on sustainability issues...with my baby on my hip in Portland, Oregon.
