Plant Sizing Guide

Artichoke Agave is a striking succulent compact and symmetrical rosette of thick, grayish-green leaves, this agave variety has distinctive broad, spade-shaped leaves that often curl inward, giving them a resemblance to artichoke heads. The leaves have pronounced teeth along the margins and a formidable spine at the tip. Artichoke Agave is well-suited for arid and rocky environments, displaying drought tolerance and thriving in well-draining soil. This succulent is a popular choice in xeriscape gardens, rock gardens, and arid landscapes, where it adds architectural interest and a touch of desert elegance. It is also cultivated in containers and as a focal point in succulent gardens, making it both a functional and visually appealing plant.
