Description
This is an evergreen plant which forms striking rosettes of thick, fleshy. spiny-edged, green leaves with bright yellow stipe in the middle. The leaves have a recurved spine along the edges which makes this plant slightly erect.

Environment

Agaves need full sun and gritty soil that percolates easily. They can even do quite well when potted but use an unglazed clay pot that will allow evaporation of excess moisture.

Water needs are moderate to light depending upon the heat of the season but the plants should be allowed to dry out before irrigation

In growing season they benefit from the application of a granulated time release fertilizer that will provide nutrient to the plant.

Landscape Uses

Strong accent, focal point for desert gardens; oasis and xeric landscape design themes. Great for use around desert and oasis ramadas and patios. Often effectively used in mass or groups spaced at 5 to 6 feet on center.
