  • Description and Cultural Plant Tips

    Very architectural in form.  The very thick fleshy leaves that form the rosette are faceted and look very sculptural.  The plant is quite compact and grows very slowly.  It may take up to 40 years for this agave to bloom which is probably a good thing because it is monocarpic and dies after blooming.

  • Master Gardener Comments

    This plant is definitely a specimen plant.  It would be cost prohibitive to buy in mass and they don’t reproduce by offsets very readily.  It makes a great container plant.  It has very sharp spines on the ends of the leaves so it should be kept out of foot traffic.
