Description

Agave bracteosa ‘Calamar’ (Solitary Candelabrum Agave) – A selection made of the typically clump forming Candalabrum Agave that is solitary or produces only a few offsets. As with the species this plant is a relatively slow growing succulent with 1 foot tall by 18″ wide rosettes of unarmed (spineless) pale green leaves. The leaves, which usually number 20 or fewer emerge vertically in the center and arch gracefully back towards the outside of the plant. When plants mature a 3 to 5 foot tall spike bears a dense terminal cluster of white flowers; distinctive from all other Agave. After flowering the main rosette slowly dies but younger suckers perpetuate the plant. Fairly drought tolerant in coastal gardens although performs best with occasional irrigation and requires it in hotter inland sites. Plant in full sun to light shade in well-drained soil. Hardy to 10 F. A good tolerance to both heat and cold but not overly wet soils. Euphorbia milii ‘Salmon’ Beautiful selection of Thai hybrid.
