Beschorneria septentrionalis (Red False Agave)

Height: 2 feet (5 feet in bloom)
Spread: 2+ feet
Light: Morning sun/afternoon shade for best performance.
Soil: Amended, average, very well-drained soil. Will rot if it stays too wet. Very drought tolerant once established.
Description: If UNUSUAL is your thing, you need this plant. Evergreen perennial featuring glossy, strap-like foliage that forms a mound of rosettes over time. Once established, this little-known agave relative will send up a 5’-7’ tall red flower spike adorned with reddish bells with green tips. Striking, to say the least! Blooms spring/early summer. A highly unusual specimen. Give it room to be amazing.
