A completely poke-less Agave you don’t have to hide away from kids or walkways. Reaching 2-3’ high and wide, its slender green leaves arch and twist, lending this species the common name of “Squid Agave.” Once fully mature, it produces a 3-5’ tall study bloom spike, with a dense cluster of creamy, bottlebrush-like flowers much beloved by hummers and bees. Though the main plant dies after blooming, it will almost certainly have produced many pups long before this event. A great architectural plant for the dry garden, it commands attention wherever it’s positioned – including in a large container. Plant in fast-draining, lightly alkaline soil. Avoid watering during the cold season. Pups can be used to start new plants. Very cold hardy and not usually bothered by deer.
