About This Plant

Full sun. Evergreen. Considered one of the most attractive small agaves, with short blue leaves, jet-black spines, and a nearly flat-topped rosette allowing easy appreciation of its designer form. Common in the horticultural trade, artichoke agave is a popular subject for pots and rock gardens; many varieties are available. It’s winter-hardy to 0 degrees F; do not apply water in winter. Plants produce plentiful offsets.

Maintenance

Occasional grooming to remove damaged leaves. Wear gloves; both sap and thorns can cause severe skin irritation.
