The 'Splendida' agave is a striking succulent with rosettes of dark green leaves up to 12" tall and 18" wide. Leaves are marked with a bright, greenish-yellow stripe down the center and the margins are lined with stout white 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. 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.
