Originating primarily from Mexico agave are native to the deserts of the Southwest and can be a beautiful addition to any landscape. They are known for their geometrical spine patterns and low maintenance. These succulents have a symmetrical rosette of stiff pointed leaf spines that come in a variety of sizes and colors. They are fast growing and require very little water or fertilizer. Each rosette flowers only once and produces a tall stem from the center of the plant that bears a large number of tube-like flowers. After the fruit is produced the original plant dies, but base shoots often become new plants. Most all require direct to indirect sun with well drained soil. Agaves also do very well in pots indoors as well as out. These plants thrive in hot dry climates like Arizona and are a perfect fit for Xeriscaping!
