Agave xylonacantha - Century Plant

This listing is for 20 seeds of this large agave.

This is one of the large agaves, with rosettes up to 1.8 metres across. It is fiercely armed with stout grey spines on the edges of the leaves. The leaves are a yellowish green and are marked with the indentation of the surrounding leaves, markings which rarely fade with time. It is a relatively hardy agave, taking temperatures as low as minus 15 Deg C without damage. To be truly cold hardy it needs to be grown with perfect drainage as is does not like to be wet at the roots if the weather is freezing. Like most members of the genus, it takes while before the plant will flower and, as it is monocarpic, this marks the end of the plants life. Needless to say, it will be many years before it reaches flowering maturity, by which stage it will have produced offsets, ensuring the continuation of the plants heritage. It is easy to grow and cultivate. Easy to germinate following the instructions located at this link.
