This succulent is 100 cm high and can become just as wide by foothills of the roots.
This yucca gets long stems with red flowers in the spring and summer, these become up to 150 cm long. These flowers attract butterflies during the flowering period.
The normal red flowering plant forms a three-foot clog with thin leathery gray-green leaves. The leaves die off after a year, after which new shoots have already been formed that emerge from the ground in the spring.
