Red Yuccas

Even though we are in the depths of winter, its perfect weather for enjoying our gardens.

Norm Schilling has developed a renewed appreciation for the red yucca, one of the most often-used plants in the desert landscapes.

The red yucca is immune to pest-damage and makes a perfect hummingbird feeder. The giant sword flower works well for blocking unsightly views.
