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. The fleshy leaves and the solid lines of the Agave form make it a statement plant for any situation, growing to about 1m high x 1.3m wide.
Ideal use: garden beds, use as features in pots, courtyards and landscapes. They are particularly popular in modern, mediterranean and tropical garden designs. They look fantastic in pots on verandahs & balconies and can be planted as courtyard features.
Other info: these plants thrive in periods of dryness, thus is a very easy to maintain plant. Watering thoroughly once a week in the summers (more often in plant is in full sun or and unglazed clay pot, or if you live in a hot, dry climate) is usually fine, and less often, to hardly at all, in winters
