Splendida Agave

The Splendida variety of agave has dark green leaves marked with a bright, yellowish-green stripe down the center of each leaf. The leaf margins are lined with stout spines.  When mature, this plant can produce up to a 12' tall flower stalk with spidery, fragrant flowers after which it will die off.  However, like most agaves, this variety will form offshoots or “pups” around the base of the parent plant as it ages that can be transplanted to new containers or into the ground.   Heat and drought tolerant, it performs best in well-drained soil with full sun exposure and little water needs.  Sold here at Creekside Nursery in 2 and 7 gallon containers.
