Agave Bracteosa is hardy but slow growing plant. As it rarely grows larger than 1′ in height and 2′ in diameter, it is a perfect container plant for patios.  It tolerates borad spectrum of  temprature too and does not require much watering. The plant can be propagated from seeds or off-shoots of older plants.
