Agave bracteosa (Squid Agave, Spider Agave)

Agave bracteosa
Squid Agave, Spider Agave

Perfect for patio containers or small planting spaces, Spider Agave grows one to two feet tall and wide. The flexible, spineless, lime green leaves twist and arch, providing a unique silhouette. Older specimens often generate new plants from rhizomes or the leaf axils, resulting in a wide-spreading mound of individual agaves. It is native to the Mexican states of Coahuila and Nuevo Leon.
