Agaves make a bold statement in any garden! This native Mexican plant forms rosettes of succulent-like, soft fleshy, lime green to bluish leaves, fantastic for adding interesting form and texture to garden beds. Agaves have long been highlighted in gardening magazines and television shows, used as features in pots, courtyards and landscapes. They are particularly popular in modern garden designs.
Agave are one of the easiest plants to establish and maintain. They grow in full sun to shade in most soil types. Agave are best grown in reasonably well drained soils and love to be watered regularly, once a week to once a fortnight, but will thrive in periods of dryness.
