About the Plant:
Agave bracteosa is a slow growing succulent with 1 foot tall by 18" wide rosettes of spineless pale green leaves. This plant suckers to gradually form a dense stand. When plants mature, a 3 to 5 foot tall spike bears a dense cluster of white flowers. After flowering the main rosette slowly dies but younger suckers perpetuate the plant. Fairly drought tolerant although performs best with occasional irrigation. Plant in full sun to light shade in well-drained soil. Comes from the Coahuilan Desert where it grows on limestone cliffs between 3,000 and 5,500 feet.
