A Bit More

Few plants rival the natural grace and sturdiness of an Agave americana.  The bold golden stripes of the variety ‘Marginata’ both adds an extra touch of brightness and encourages a more manageable size to the iconic shape.  While the substantial spines make it not generally recommended for planting near walkways, Agave ‘marginata’ looks exceptionally majestic on a hillside where the eventual huge flower stalk has room to tower and impress.
