Blue Agave 'Century Plant'
Agave tequilana, commonly called blue agave or tequila agave, is an agave plant that is an important economic product of Jalisco, Mexico, due to its role as the base ingredient of tequila, a popular distilled beverage.
Can't tolerate Wet Feet! Large, bold and handsome, the impressive blue agave may reach a height of 6 to 8 feet and grow just as wide. Plant your blue agave in well-draining soil that receives at least six hours of direct sun daily. It is well armed with stiff, needle-sharp bayonet spines on the leaf tips, so situate it away from foot traffic and areas your children and pets tend to frequent.
