Agave Desmentiana 'Smooth Agave'

The Smooth Agave plant is a compact, fast-growing Agave with an elegant urn shape and cupped green-blue foliage. Leaves are mostly or entirely toothless along the edges with spines at the ends of the leaves. Produces multiple small offsets, forming a clump that grows 3 to 4 feet tall and wide. Once it reaches maturity, it will bloom with an 8 to 10 foot tall stalk of yellow flowers. At this point, the primary rosette will die, but offsets can be easily propagated. 

Growing Smooth Agave

  • Plant Smooth Agave in a location with full sun to partial shade, ensuring it receives ample sunlight for healthy growth.
  • Provide well-draining soil, such as sandy or rocky soil, to prevent waterlogging and root rot, as Smooth Agave is susceptible to root rot in overly moist conditions.
  • Water sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between watering sessions, as Smooth Agave is drought-tolerant and prefers dry conditions.
  • Prune the plant occasionally to remove dead or damaged leaves and maintain its attractive rosette shape.
  • Smooth Agave is hardy in USDA zones 9-11 and thrives in warm, arid climates, making it suitable for xeriscaping and desert gardens. It can also be grown in containers and brought indoors during colder months.
