This Mexican lily plant features variegated leaves that are green with a pinkish-red tinge, giving it a unique and eye-catching appearance. These leaves grow up to 3 feet long and are slightly curved, which resemble those of a yucca plant. In the spring, this lily plant produces tall spikes of pinkish-red flamingo flowers with prominent red bracts that are held high above the foliage, adding a burst of color to the garden. 

The Mexican lily is a hardy and low-maintenance plant that is perfect for adding a touch of tropical flair to your garden or patio. The Mexican lilies are not considered toxic to humans or pets. It is also deer-resistant, making it an excellent choice for gardens where deer are a problem.It can be propagated easily through division or seed. It is a great choice for adding height and texture to your garden and looks especially beautiful when planted in groups or as a specimen plant. 

Watering Needs 

Beschorneria yuccoides 'Flamingo Glow' is a drought-tolerant plant that prefers infrequent watering. It is important to allow the soil to dry out between waterings, as overwatering can lead this flamingo flowering plant to root rot and other problems. During the growing season, water it once in 2-3 weeks when the soil is dry to the touch. In the winter, when the Mexican lily is dormant, reduce watering to once a month or when the soil is completely dry. 

When watering, be sure to water deeply, allowing the water to soak into the soil and reach the roots. Avoid getting water on the leaves, as this can lead to fungal problems. If you are growing 'Flamingo Glow' in a container, be sure that the pot has drainage holes to allow excess water to escape. 

Light Requirements 

The Mexican lily prefers full sun to partial shade. It is important to provide it with some shade during the hottest part of the day, as too much direct sun can scorch the leaves. In areas with very hot summers, it may be best to provide some afternoon shade to protect this Mexican lily plant from the intense heat.  

When choosing a location for Mexican lily, look for a spot that receives at least 6 hours of sunlight per day. If you are growing this in a container, be sure to move it to a shady spot during the hottest part of the day to protect it from the sun. If you are growing these Mexican lilies indoors, be sure to place them in a bright, sunny window where they will receive plenty of light.  

Optimal Soil & Fertilizer Needs 

Beschorneria yuccoides prefers well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter. A soil mix that contains equal parts of sand, peat moss, and perlite is ideal for these Mexican lilies. If you are growing 'Flamingo Glow' in a container, be sure to use a potting mix that is specifically formulated for succulents. So, here at Planet Desert, we have specialized succulents potting soil that includes an organic substrate with mycorrhizae to help with the growth of a healthy root system.  

When it comes to fertilizer, the Mexican lily is a light feeder that does not require a lot of nutrients. A slow-release fertilizer that is low in nitrogen and high in phosphorus and potassium is ideal for this plant. Fertilize once a year in the spring, when new growth begins to emerge.  

Hardiness Zones & More 

The Mexican lily is hardy in USDA hardiness zones 6 to 11. It can tolerate temperatures as low as 10-15 degrees Fahrenheit but prefers temperatures between 35 degrees Fahrenheit. In areas with very cold winters, it is important to protect these Mexican lilies from frost and freezing temperatures, as these cannot withstand frost for long periods. 

When it comes to humidity, flamingo flower care includes dry to medium humidity levels. It can tolerate some humidity, but high humidity can lead to fungal problems and other issues. If you live in a humid climate, make sure to provide adequate air circulation around the succulent to keep the leaves dry.
