Agave geminiflora 'Spaghetti Strap' (Spaghetti Strap Twin-Flowered Agave)

Height: 2-3 feet
Spread: 2-3 feet. Very symmetrical.
Light: Sun to shade. Spines will be more rigid in sun.
Soil: Well-drained soil. Drought tolerant.
Description: Evergreen perennial characterized by long, thin, flexible, green spines that radiate outwards. 'Spaghetti Strap' was selected for its lack of side filaments on the leaf margins. Huge flower stalk arises from center of plant after about 10 years. As with all agaves after blooming, the rosette will die. But, hey, what a dramatic way to go! Great in containers or rock gardens. Not super-cold hardy, so site in a protected spot or bring indoors in winter.
