A handsome perennial succulent with a thick stem that produces rosettes of thick, soft, fleshy, blueish pale green, pointed, leaves. The main stem will also grow other small rosettes at the same time.
The main stems ultimately produce a tall arching flower spike, up to 3m in height with a profusion of attractive creamy-white bell-shaped flowers in spring and summer.
Makes a bold contrasting statement in any garden or landscaping project.

Agaves are one of the easiest plants to establish and maintain. They grow in full sun to shade in most soil types.

Grow notes:

Although seed can be sown most of the year in many parts of Australia seed is generally best sown in spring or autumn, avoid the coldest and hottest months of the year. The optimum germination temperature for germination is around 18-22°C.

  1. Soak seed overnight in warm water.
  2. Sow on the surface and cover very lightly. Do not bury seeds deeply as they require a degree of light to germinate.
  3. Keep warm & moist but not wet.
  4. Germination should occur in 14-28 days @ 18-22°C.

General note: Seeds of many plants are dormant and require specific conditions or pre-treatment for germination.
Do not be too hasty to discard seed that does not germinate, seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural requirements for germination to occur. Containers put to one side will often surprise long after they were discarded.
