There are a number of beautiful woody lilies that you can incorporate into your gardening area. An agave plant is the perfect choice for those who want a dryland perennial plant with a number of color choices. Colors will range from a dusty blue or green to a beautiful cream or yellow. The actual color of the plant will depend on the specific species and cultivar. Agave plants can grow to 12 feet wide and 6 feet tall for some species, while others may be only a few inches tall and wide. The possibilities are literally endless when you choose to incorporate these plants into your garden.
Agaves are perennial plants whose winter hardiness ranges from planting zone 5 through zone 10. It is important that you choose the right plants for your specific climate to ensure that they thrive when planted. You can also choose to grow an agave plant in a container and display it inside your home or on a deck during the summer months. If you are planning to grow them in the ground, be sure that you plant them in well-draining soil. Most species of the agave plant will give you beautiful displays until they flower…often 10 to 15 years in cultivation. Plant Delights Nursery, Inc. has a number of beautiful agave plants from which you can choose.
