Family: Agave (Agavaceae)
Zone 8 to 12, otherwise grown as a potted plant and protected from severe frost.
Perennial succulent native to mid elevations of Texas, New Mexico and Mexico. The plant makes a bold rosette of spiny-tipped, fat, leathery and succulent leaves, giving occasional rise to the 12 foot flowering spike garlanded with reddish-yellow flowers. Agave produces a sweet juice that can be concentrated into a superior sweetener, fermented to make an alcoholic beverage (e.g. tequila) As a landscape plant, Agave prefers full sun to light shade, fast-draining soil and scant water throughout the growing season.
