Smooth Agave

Plant Sizing Guide

Smooth Agave is a succulent plant originating from Mexico. This agave species is recognized for its attractive rosette of smooth, lance-shaped leaves that are typically a vibrant green color. The leaves are spineless and have a graceful arching form, giving the plant an overall soft and appealing appearance. Smooth Agave is well-suited for gardens and landscapes due to its ornamental qualities and relatively low-maintenance nature. It is drought-tolerant and prefers well-draining soil. Like many agaves, it has a long lifespan and typically blooms only once, producing a tall flower spike with yellowish-green flowers. The Smooth Agave is often cultivated as an architectural focal point in xeriscape gardens or succulent landscapes, adding both visual interest and texture to outdoor spaces.
