Because they are a native of South Africa, they can tolerate heat and full sun and are considered drought tolerant. Performs well in Zones 9-11 and can achieve a mature growth habit of 12-15” tall by 18” wide. The flower spikes bloom above the foliage at about a 2’ height.

Japanese Yew 'Dwarf Pringles'

As a lower growing form of the Standard Japanese Yew, this shrub has dense, small, dark green, needle-like foliage, but without the sharp points. This plant grows well in Zones 8-11 in partial shade to full sun. For zones with colder temperature ranges, it can be grown in containers for moving indoors during winter. Also effective for mass planting on embankments, hillsides and slopes where its root system can assist with erosion control. Left natural, it can reach 3 to 5 ft. tall with a spread of up to 6 ft. wide. However, it responds well to pruning and shaping for size control. This is also a great plant to use in coastal areas because it tolerates mild salt spray. Considered as deer resistant and is not bothered by many insects.

Red Yucca is a native to Texas and can be found in most areas of the state. It is remarkably cold hardy in Zones 5-10. Red Yucca is not truly a yucca, but an Agave that has the hardy character of a yucca. This plant will handle almost all weather conditions, including drought conditions. With its red tubular flowers, it's great for attracting bees, hummingbirds and butterflies.
