One of the prettiest Agaves around! And the friendliest! With no prickly spines, this Agave is very easy to incorporate into your garden. The blue-ish leaves compliment its neighbors too. Understandably named “Octopus Agave” since it looks like a many-armed octopus swaying in the ocean currents. After several years it will produce a 10-12’ tall flower spike of yellow blooms. Plantlets form on the spike & drop to the ground to form new plants. The original plant will die after blooming but there will be many babies to start anew. Grows 3-4’ tall & 5-6’ wide, doesn’t produce offsets that would mar its shapely form. Great for containers. Native to northwest Mexico. Needs good drainage.
