Agave design and application suggestions:

Agaves are a wonderfully diverse group of plants. Agaves can be small and solitary like our Agave victoria-reginae or big and bold like our Agave americana variegata. Equally suited for container gardening or used in landscape applications with proper climate conditions. Group small and mid-sized agaves in the landscape for impact and place larger agaves to add big bold accents. You can do the same with container gardening. A mix of different sized agaves with different growth habits, leaf shapes and colors in nice containers can give any room or patio an impactful artistic boost.

Why purchase our Agave?

Our agaves are grown in their native habitat right here in Southern Arizona. Raised outdoors with just the right amount of water and fertilizer, they come to you in their natural form. These plants do not come to you from a greenhouse. They are already hardy to whatever growing conditions you have to offer. Our agaves present the same appearance as you will find them in their native habitats.

If you want to plant them in a container for a sunroom, patio or window planter, great! If you want to take your agaves and plant them in the ground, also great! No acclimation needed. Our plants are ready to go!

Perfect for my office

Ordered one of these for my office to freshen it up. The leaves are short with nice color to them.

looks great

I planted a handful of these in my front yard and they look great close together. Low maintenace too... I just remove any dead leaves whenever needed.
