Design Ideas: The dramatic, architectural structure of the Agave make it a stunning choice for a variety of gardens. Include this variegated beauty in a desert, modern, minimalist and even Mediterranean landscape and you will bring natural structure and texture to your garden. Create a stunning focal point by planting in mass among hardscape components like stone, rock, and wood. The use of a single Agave plant in a modern container or a mixed planting with other smaller succulents offers a low maintenance option for colder climates to enjoy this plant indoors and out.

Provide lean to average, well-drained soil. Thrives in full sun in cool coastal areas; shelter from harsh afternoon sun and reflected heat in hot summer areas. Drought tolerant once established, but looks best with periodic water in extreme heat. The mother plant declines after flowering; younger rosettes will perpetuate the plant.
