The largest of the Agave species, the Agave Americana, commonly called the Century Plant, grows long, pointed blue-green leaves appearing to stem straight from the ground. The Century Plant grows at a fast rate (comparative to other cacti) establishing thick leaves in a heavy 'pup' cluster that can reach out up to 3 feet from the base. Native to Texas, the Century Plant thrives in full or partial sun locations, and absolutely loves the hot Arizona weather, but is also cold hardy enough to survive our coldest winters. An agave with an acutely recognizable structure, Century Plants look great in any Arizona or desert landscape application.
