Squid Agave (Agave bracteosa)
The Squid Agave sometimes known as the spider agave is a native from Mexico that is well adapted to our tough western soils and watering habits. Long green leaves reaching up to 24 inches long. These plants form a larger trunk when mature and can reach 2-3' tall. These succulents are well suited for gardens both tropical and desert and also are considered to be a fire-wise landscape choice.
These plants look similar to their cousins the Octopus Agave the way their leaves curl and they produce a similar white yellow bloom that covers the upper third of the plant.
