Amberly’s plant of the week – Americana Agave

Amberly loves the Americana Agave — but not too close or you might get poked! If you want a low maintenance showstopper, this is the the plant for you. Just give it a spot where it can bask in the sun all day. This glorious succulent will tolerate heat, sun, drought, and poor soils, which is why they’re found in harsh terrains in the Southwestern US and Mexico. Make sure to give it plenty of room, because it reaches 6 feet tall and 6 feet wide.  Also, Americana Agaves will vigorously produce pups, which are super easy to remove and re-plant elsewhere.
