GENERAL INFORMATION

  • The plant forms a large rosette of twisted silvery-green leaves and strips of bright yellow along its leaf margins, giving it the appearance of a striped ribbon.
  • Its sword-like leaves stand upright to about four to six feet tall and wide, growing in a stiff rosette.
  • The leaves are armed with small brown hooks and it has a sharp, spiny tip on each leaf.
  • Agave americana has many variegated forms that show differences in the leaves and names.
  • Like most agaves, it produces a flower stalk only once in its lifetime, after ten to twenty years.
  • The flower stalk grows to twenty feet or more, producing exotic, pale yellow blossoms.
  • After blooming, the mother plant dies.
  • Use it as a dramatic, ornamental, or specimen plant in desert landscapes for its outstanding features.
  • It can also be used in xeriscape or tropical landscape settings, or planted in tubs or large containers.
  • This strikingly beautiful desert accent makes a dramatic statement and focal point in any landscape.
  • The variegated century plant is native to Mexico, but has naturalized itself in Mediterranean and desert climates.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • The plant will grow in most soil, but prefers natural soil without any amendments added.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Feeding typically isn't necessary for agave plants.
  • In fact, feeding encourages flowering, which you don’t want to happen too soon because most agave plants die after flowering.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Full sun and reflected heat.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Light watering from either irrigation or natural rainfall during the hot, summer season.
