The dog days of summer are officially here. July this year was not too bad, in fact here in the Texas Hill country, I had over 6 inches of rain. What a blessing. Then August hit and so did the heat and the rain is no where to be found. Oh well, this is the norm for August. When temperatures are in the triple digits and the plants start to look very thirsty, you know summer is here. However, there are some plants that thrive in these conditions and one of them is the Red or Yellow Yucca.
The funny thing about this plant is it really not a Yucca it’s a succulents. It thrives in the heat and is very hardy in the cold.
Here are the facts:
Red Yucca or Yellow Yucca works will with Artemesia, Lantana, and Salvia Greggii. If you have a dry area in your garden that needs drought tolerant color all summer, Red or Yellow Yucca is a great addition to any garden.
