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.

Rojo Sumatrana Banana

The Rojo Sumatrana Banana is a variety of the wild banana native to Sumatra, Indonesia. The blood banana is an ornamental plant named for the dark red patches on its leaves, though its small-seeded fruits are also edible. It grows 8 to 10 feet tall in the wild, but is well-adapted to container growing and can be maintained at 3' to 5'. It grows best in full or partial sun and is hardy in zones 8 - 11. Grown here at Creekside Nursery in a 3g container.
