Agave Macroacantha

Agave Macroacantha is one of my favorite Agave Plants. It is neat, compact, and stiff. The leaves are usually blue-green with prominent black teeth and very sharp black spine.

Agave Macroacantha is quite hardy plant and can withstand drought. It likes full to partial sun and can be grown from seeds and off-shoots though it does not produce lot  of pups like most of the Agave plants. It is suitable for both landscaping and as container plant.
