This agave can measure up to 1.20 meters. It requires a sunny exposure but can tolerate a slight shade if it is located in a very hot climate.
The golden agave produces a very spectacular bloom of golden flowers between its rosettes of pointed blue-green leaves. Unfortunately, it flowers only after about twenty years and marks the end of the plant’s life. Its inflorescence can exceed three meters in height!
In the ground, this plant does not produce rejection. Provide it with sandy, light and draining soil. Indeed, this plant does not support stagnant water.
The plant easily tolerates a negative temperature of -15°C.
