Design IdeasThe dramatic, architectural structure of the Agave make it a stunning choice for a variety of gardens. Include this variegated beauty in a desert, modern, minimalist and even Mediterranean landscape and you will bring natural structure and texture to your garden. Create a stunning focal point by planting in mass among hardscape components like stone, rock, and wood. The use of a single Agave plant in a modern container or a mixed planting with other smaller succulents offers a low maintenance option for colder climates to enjoy this plant indoors and out.
Care Information
