The Mountain Agave is a truly stunning architectural arid plant, particularly close to our hearts as we played a part in its introduction to UK cultivation.
Agave montana is an evergreen perennial succulent that forms a rosette of deep green leaves marked with a white patina and edged with pale thorns that lead to red spines at the tip.

Care & Size Guidance
Agave montana likes a position in full sun with good drainage, and we recommend adding gravel and mulch around the base when planted in the ground. When happy, they’re one of the fastest growing agaves in the UK climate.
Whilst Agave montana is hardier than most Agaves, in especially cold frosts we do recommend giving them protection.
The Mountain Agave has not been in cultivation in the UK for long enough to assess how well it flowers, but in the wild it produces large panicles of small clustered yellow flowers.
