A0448 Agave geminiflora 10 seeds 2.25

Winner of the popularity contest, this versatile agave tolerates a wide range of exposures, from full sun to full shade. Twin-flowered agave is a solitary plant, rapidly forming a 3-4 foot symmetrical rosette of narrow, dark green leaves. The smooth leaves have a terminal spine, and the margins are often edged with fine white fibers. When grown in some shade the leaves are arching and flexible, so the terminal spines are not a big safety concern. Twin-flowered agave has amazing versatility, tolerating exposures ranging form full sun and reflected heat to full shade. This accent plant forms a dense symmetrical rosette of narrow, dark green leaves, to about 3 feet tall and wide. In full sun, the leaves are stiff and straight, and the terminal spines can be a hazard. In shady exposures, the leaves reflex to form a softer silhouette. As with most agaves, this plant blooms once, and then dies. At the end of its life cycle, which averages about 10 years in cultivation, this plant will send up a spectacular 15-18 foot tall flower spike. Twin-flowered agave should be planted in well-drained soil, and receive minimal irrigation. Although it suffers frost damage at 20 F, gardeners in colder climates can plant Agave geminiflora in portable containers and move them indoors when temperatures plummet.
