One of our favorite Agaves, Agave guiengola forms an open rosette 3-4 feet tall by 4 to 6 feet wide. The few massively thick, white-green glaucous leaves are very broad at the base and taper to a brown terminal spine. Along the edge of the 18-24+ inch long leaves there are many dark-colored teeth. When mature this plant produces a 5 to 6 foot tall spike with pale yellow flowers; although we have large plants that are 12 years old in the garden, we have not seen this plant flower. Plant in full sun to light shade and irrigate only occasionally in coastal gardens to regularly in hotter inland gardens. Protect from temperatures below 25 degrees F. to avoid disfiguring the foliage. A stunning plant for large containers or planted in a protected spot in the succulent garden.
