Agave americana 'Striata'

Agave

Plant Type:

BROADLEAF EVERGREEN SHRUBS

Agave americana 'Striata' (ex: Jonathan Lehrer) - 3 remaining. This agave has blue-gray succulent leaves with striations of creamy white in each blade. Also a great potted plant in the north. Draining soil with some fertility and added lime in plenty of sun. Keep it drier in winter. Pot grown offset.


In regards to autumn planting: Generally we caution that plants near and at the northern end of their climate range are best considered for spring planting so they have a chance to settle in and grab hold to their new environs. If you purchase a tricky plant now and it perishes in the winter please understand that we will not take responsibility. If you are uncertain be prudent, wait until spring.
