*RETAIL - Agave chrysantha

*THIS SIZE ONLY AVAILABLE FOR SALE IN OUR RETAIL NURSERY

Sharp spines -- on the margins of long and stiff, green leaves with a strong, particularly pointed one on the tapered leaf tip -- mark this striking agave that blooms in early summer with tall candelabras of yellow buds opening to bright, golden-yellow flowers - very showy with a faint aroma of coconut. Found on dry, open slopes in Arizona, these can reach 3 ft tall x 5 ft wide as solitary rosettes, growing in full sun and well-drained soil with little or no summer water once established. Best grown away from high traffic areas where the spines could be dangerous. Flowers only once before dying and regrowing from basal offsets. Frost hardy to 17F, uppermost USDA zone 8.
