Hesperaloe campanulata 'Lionheart'
Lionheart® is a selection of Hesperaloe campanulata known for its sturdy, upright flower spike to 10 feet and extended flower show. Blooms will begin mid-spring as
with most other Hesperaloes but can last all summer long, even in the hottest climates. Individual blossoms have deep pink buds that open up to a nice iridescent white center. The leaves are similar to Hesperaloe funifera, but smaller in scale and not so coarse. However, it is a smaller species, growing to only 3 to 4 feet tall and wide. Plant Lionheart® in full sun and well-drained soil. Plants will also tolerate reflected heat or partial shade. Native to Nuevo Leon, Mexico, this plant is hardy to at least 0 º F.
