Description

Family Asparagaceae
Originating from Mexico.

  • Beautiful compact evergreen rosettes of silver-green foliage, often with red spines on their margins.
  • Epic, towering flower spikes emerge after many years bearing multitudes of golden yellow tubular flowers.
  • One of the hardiest agaves for the UK, easy to grow in full sun or shade in free draining poor soil.

Broad, almost triangular emerald green leaves form a lotus-flower-like rosette of stunning beauty. Covered in a silvery bloom, the backs of the leaves carry the imprint of the leaf outside it, where it was tightly wrapped around it whilst emerging. Turning red and yellow when its spectacular 3-4m tall flower spike is produced, bearing hundreds of yellow tubular blooms, heralds its death, to be succeeded by offsets produced around its base. Hailing from mountainous regions, growing in pine forests, it is both light shade, and cold tolerant, making an ideal specimen for planting out in free-draining soil or in pots. Height and spread after 10 – 20 years 1.5m x 1.5m
