Beschorneria ‘Ding Dong’ False Red Yucca


Beschorneria 'Ding Dong'

Beschorneria ‘Ding Dong’

My Beschorneria ‘Ding Dong’ is blooming!   Beschorneria ‘Ding Dong’ has one of the largest inflorescence’s of any of the Beschornerias, and I am always amazed to watch it grow and bloom up to seven feet tall.  This beautiful specimen plant in the photo is in the ground, but I do have 4″ and one gallons available here at Peacock Horticultural Nursery.

Beschorneria is a genus of succulent plants belonging to the Agavaceae that are native to Mexico.  Beschorneria  ’Ding Dong’ is a cross between B. yuccoides ssp. dekosteriana and B. septentrionalis chosen for it’s amazing vigor.  These plants form a 3′ rosette of  roughly textured green leaves.  I took the photo to the right just recently and will add photos when it reaches it’s full potential.  When it fully opens there are many red and green bell shaped flowers.  These plants are hardy to 10 – 15 F and can be grown in full sun to part sun. 

DSC_00871255Other Beschorneria available at Peacock Horticultural Nursery include Beschorneria rigida, B. ssp. Queretaro, B. yuccoides and B. albiflora.
