Description

Agave tequilana ‘Sunrise’ is an attractive, medium to large agave, up to 5 to 6 feet tall, with open rosettes of narrow light gray colored leaves that have pale yellow bands along the small toothed margins. The leaves are gradually narrow at the tip and end in a sharp, dark brown terminal spine. Stiff, erect leaves are arranged in an open rosette. The green flowers with pink stamens are arranged along a branched inflorescence.

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 Cactus 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

It is also a popular landscape plant in beach gardens

Agave plants are easy to care, drought tolerant and perennial. They are hardy plants which require full sunlight and gritty soil. Agaves make for one of the best outdoor plants as they are very low on maintenance and can survive the punishing heat in India.

Watering needs to be done sparingly but thoroughly. Water agaves once the soil goes completely dry. Have a drainage hole so as to let the excess water drain out. Over watering can cause root rot in agave so be careful while watering them. Addition of pebbles and rocks increase the drainage capability in a container.

Agave plants need fertilising only in summers when the plant is actively growing. It is best to leave the plant alone in winters. Do not try to repot it during the winters as it does not like getting disturbed.
