Hardy Agave americana 3L Potted Plant

A stunning and striking architectural plant that suits modern garden designs, especially in a metallic pot. This tough succulent really thrives on neglect and is surprisingly hardy in the UK making growing more exotic plants a breeze. It is a striking specimen, very slow growing and 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 imemdiately take it's place. Grow in a very free draining mix with plenty of sand or gravel (up to 50% mix with compost). 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.
