Hardy Agave americana 3L Pot
A stunning and striking architectural plant that suits modern garden designs, especially when planted up into a metallic pot.
This tough succulent really thrives on neglect, and is surprisingly hardy in the UK as long as they're kept dry. It is a striking specimen and very slow growing over here and therefore very long lasting.
After 20 -30 years they may flower - unleashing huge 3-5m tall flower spikes in a last act of bravado, as after flowering they die. However, there are normally lots of 'pups' round the side by then, which immediately take its place.
Grow in a very free draining mix with plenty of sand or gravel (up to 50% mix with compost). Once potted, you can leave them to it for at least 5-10 years.
Warning - the leaves have very spiky tips, and some smaller ones on leaf margins. Handle with care. Avoid places where children or pets may brush against them.
