Agave filifera - Threadleaf Agave


Not quite ready


Product Details


Agave filifera - Threadleaf Agave: Due to the peeling white perimeter on its deep green leaves, this species is known as the “Threadleaf Agave.” It typically grows up to 2 feet high by 3 feet across. As it matures, the “threads” entangle themselves around the leaves. Unlike its solitary cousin schidigera, filifera produces many offshoots. If ignored for too long, the entire garden may be colonized with smallish cultivars. Even some of the starts already have offshoots!

Fun Fact: This is an especially cold hardy Agave that can tolerate temperatures as low as zero degrees Fahrenheit
