The Nation's Most Drought Tolerant Plant

Why Century Plants Plants?

The Century Plant, also known as Blue American Agave, first originated in dry areas of Mexico and are now becoming popular all over America. Why? Well, for starters, they will adapt to dry, sandy soils and thrive in drought, extreme heat, and humidity with ease.

And no matter your soil - from sandy to rocky - the Century Plant will adapt without fuss and bring unique beauty to your landscape. Whether you use it as a groundcover or in rock gardens, the Blue American takes your garden up a notch.

It's known for its large, thick, and fleshy leaves that stem from a central crown and arch over towards the ends. Along with the unforgettable blue-green hue that sets it apart from other plants' exotic tooth edges, the Century Plant's foliage is unlike any other and delivers an alluring fragrance as well.

You can even plant your Agaves in containers to use them as accent pieces for porches and patios. When used to frame entryways, the Agave's blue-green hue gives homes an inviting and charming look.

If you live in a cold area, 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. And since it's a succulent, it stores water in its leaves to use when it needs a drink and won't need pruning, meaning it essentially takes care of itself...leaving little to no maintenance for you.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better
