Description

Agave vilmoriniana has long, narrow, deeply furrowed, bright green thick succulent leaves that arch and twist like the tentacles of an octopus. This garden friendly, solitary agave has margins with tiny serration and soft terminal spines. Plant this drought tolerant and low maintenance agave in large containers or use as a specimen plant. Plant in full sun in coastal gardens but In hotter inland climates, provide late afternoon shade. Frost sensitive.

Plant care

Agaves are monocarpic which means plants bloom once in their lifetime before dying. For Agave vilmoriniana, a tall flower spike develops in 5-10 years when it reaches maturity. Bulbils (new plantlets) will develop on the flower stalk then drop to the ground to form new plants if left alone. Requires well drained soil. Water regularly after planting until roots are established then reduce frequency. May benefit from afternoon shade in hot inland areas. Protect from frost.
