Agave attenua - Succulent and Cacti

We use Aramax couriers for all our deliveries and they are currently taking too long to deliver our plants. We wll not be dispatching any more orders until the new year when they are back to normal.

Please read our condtions of sale here. We go to great lengths to pack our plants well for transport but sometimes couriers can still damage them or leave them without light and water for far too long. In this case we are sorry but we cannot be responsible for thier mistakes. If you have lost or damaged plants please lodge a claim with them here.  You can arrange for a pick upin Kumeu from here. And if you know of a fantastic courier service that will travel to rural places within NZ we would love to hear from them. Please tell us your amazing story here!

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.
