The genus (botanic) name Agave comes from the Greek meaning admirable, referring to the handsome appearance of the plant in flower.
 Native to Mexico this plant will grow in most parts of Australia and northern New Zealand. Creamy coloured flowers are produced after about 10 years’ growth (although this varies with the location of the plant).
Many agaves are spiky, dangerous plants however the foliage of this species is non-spiky, making it welcome in any garden. It has broad, grey green leaves 50-70cm (20-28″) long. After flowering the flower spike which grows to about 1.5m (5′) will die but suckers from the new plant will form at the bottom of the old plant meaning it will continue to grow in your garden.
