The Nation's Most Drought Tolerant Plant

Blue American Agaves first originated in dry areas of Mexico and are now becoming popular all over America, up to growing zone 8 when planted outdoors. They will adapt to dry, sandy soils and thrive in droughts, extreme heat and humidity. 

No matter what type of soil you have, sandy and rocky or heavy with clay the American Blue Agave will adapt to it without a fuss and bring unique beauty to your landscape with a variety of ornamental functions, including use as ground covers or in rock gardens.

The Blue American Agave is most known for its large, thick and fleshy leaves that stem from a central crown and arch over towards the ends. They have an unforgettable blue green hue that sets them apart from other plants, and exotic spikey teeth on the edges.

It’s very common to plant Blue American Agaves in containers to use them as accent pieces for porches and patios. When used to frame entryways their blue green hue gives homes an inviting and charming look.

If you live in a colder area than growing zone 8, simply plant your Agave in a pot and bring it indoors once the weather gets cold. Its energetic leaves and vibrant color will keep you company all winter long.

They can be used as focal points in the garden to draw attention or as the center of attention and pairs great with other plants. They’re also commonly used as border rows, and by growing 4 to 6 feet tall they become large enough to be used as a privacy hedge or to hide unsightly objects like AC units. 

The Blue American Agave is a succulent, so it stores water in its leaves to use when it needs a drink, meaning this plant essentially takes care of itself, leaving little to no maintenance for you.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Blue American Agave

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Blue American Agave .

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Blue American Agave gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Blue American Agave again after the transplant is complete.
