Austin Native Landscaping: “Red yuccas are a common sight here in Austin and for a good reason:They are relatively deer resistant. Deer will eat the blooms but will spare the foliage. The plant is an evergreen that will provide you much needed greenery during the gloomy months of winter and best of all, the plant is extremely hardy and will thrive on very little water making Red Yuccas a major recommendation for any drought tolerant Xeriscape landscaping in Austin. Any Xeriscape design would greatly benefit from having a Red Yucca or five in it!”
