Beschorneria albiflora

Beschorneria albiflora Beschorneria albiflora



Amazing evergreen focal point plant alert! Crazy RARE, Beschorneria albiflora is the only species that forms an aboveground trunk that can reach 30” high! How awesome is that?!? Stunning sea green rosettes composed of smooth & strappy leaves grow to 4’ wide & 6-8’ tall (including trunk). In late-Winter to early Spring a long lasting, flamboyant bright red multi-branching flower stalk emerges like  a mythical beast from the center, reaching 4-5’ tall & it’s completely covered in pendulous, hummingbird attracting, tubular blooms that are creamy white as the buds open, fading to pink & then red. A stunning traffic stopper! In full sun regular water preferred, but with a bit more shade it needs less. The southernmost species, it’s endemic to Chiapas, Guatamala & Honduras.  Hardy to 15-20 degrees.
