Native to Mexico.



Fast growing and tolerant of a variety of conditions including wet and dry conditions, however ensure the soil is free draining and the plant is not exposed to frost. Also suited to container growing.

This is one of the toughest soft leaved agaves and grows easily in full sun but it will look its best in part shade.

At the end of the plants life cycle it will produce an impressively tall flower spike with many branched stalks covered in clusters of pale yellow flowers.

Propagation occurs via offsets ("pups") produced during the life of the plant, and also via bulbils when the mother plant goes to flower.
