Hesperaloe is a small genus in the Agave family coming from the dry grasslands of southern Texas and northern Mexico. Hesperaloes come as stemless rosettes of hard rigid leaves rich in fibers.

The bell-shaped flowers come on a large inflorescence, and are a combination of white, pink and yellow, that depends on the species.

Propagation is mostly done by seeds or division.
