Agave americana is the native plant that is most familiarly known as the Century Plant, and this selection can grow into an enormous specimen that has thick fleshy, blue-green leaves that surround the center root system that can grow deep into the earth, then send out rhizomes that form new plants at long distances from the mother plant, but the majority of newly forming plants are in a close cluster surrounding the mother plant. This agave is cold hardy to survive to minus 5 degrees F.

•   The Agave americana plant has a spreading rosette (about 4 m wide) of gray-green leaves up to 2 meters (6 ft.) long; each with a spiny margin and a heavy spike at the tip. Its common name derives from its habit of only occasionally flowering; but when it does; the spike with a cyme of big yellow flowers; may reach up to 8 meters (25 ft.) in height. The plant dies after flowering. The average life-span is around 25 years.

•   Agave americana plant will be a great addition to your landscape. The Century Plant or Maguey (Agave americana) is an agave originally from Mexico but cultivated worldwide. The Agave americana plant has huge; fleshy leaves that radiate from the mother plant with hooked spines along the edges and a piercing spine at the tip with the whole plant being colored blue-green.

•   After about 10 years the mother Agave americana plant sends up a flower stalk about 30 ft. tall bearing yellow-green flowers; which after maturing turn into miniature plants that are attached to the stalk; but they may be removed for new starts to plant in individual pots. The variegated Agave Americanum is very colorful to plant in the landscape or as a xeric containerized ornamental to use indoors. The creamy white striping on the leaves turns pure white in full sunlight, and mature plants can grow large.
