IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
CHECK Dormancy Table to SEE WHAT'S GROWING & WHAT'S DORMANT

We remove some of the soil when we ship. There are usually no issues with a plants
out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. When you receive your plants, put them
into a pot with moist soil. Regards watering: give
the roots opportunity to start
reaching down for water. Please check to see if your plants should be watered at
the time of year you purchase. Some don't get water in winter and some no water in summer.
How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

The photos on our website represent what plants look like when growing.
We are not selling the plant in the photo.
Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time.
A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes
so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.

Sale plants may require additional freight payment

Agave bracteosa

Agave bracteosa is a Slow growing succulent. It grows 1 foot tall by 18" wide rosettes of unarmed (spineless) pale green leaves. The leaves, which usually number 20 or fewer emerge vertically in the center and arch gracefully back towards the outside of the plant. This plant suckers to gradually form a dense stand. When plants mature a 3 to 5 foot tall spike bears a dense terminal cluster of white flowers, distinctive from all other Agave. After flowering the main rosette slowly dies but younger suckers perpetuate the plant. Fairly drought tolerant in coastal gardens although performs best with occasional irrigation and requires it in hotter inland sites. Plant in full sun to light shade in well-drained soil. Hardy to 10 F. A good tolerance to both heat and cold but not overly wet soils. Comes from the Coahuilan Desert where it grows on limestone cliffs between 3,000 and 5,500 feet. Our plants grown from seed. This description is based on our research and the observations we have made of this plant as it grows in containers at our nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We also appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Agave bracteosa.
