Description

Family Asparagaceae
Originating from N. USA, Mexico.

Bold and chunky, dazzlingly silver and fierce looking, its broad leaves have a strong agave character, revealing its hybrid parentage. Although fierce-looking, the leaves are quite soft and flexible, making the imposing hooked spines on its leaf margins relatively harmless. One of the larger False Agaves, it slowly produces pups (young offshoot rosettes), making a clump that regularly produces 2m tall spikes of bright yellow flowers. Worth trying outside in the hottest most sheltered spots in southern and coastal gardens, or returning to an unheated conservatory or greenhouse for winter.

Height and spread after 5 – 10 years 50cm x 60cm
