Agave salmiana - 'Green Giant' (Giant Agave)

Agave salmiana is commonly known as Giant Agave is native to Mexico and plant in full sun where it is drought tolerant. This plant has also been in cultivation in Europe since the 19th century. It is a vigorous and evergreen plant. Its fleshy green leaves are strap shaped, up to 1.5m long with large spins (up to 8cm) arranged its leaf margins. When the plant matures and blooms the tall candelabra inflorescence rises to over 20 feet bearing yellow flowers that attract birds and bees. Some people cultivate Agave salmiana in their garden as an ornamental plant.

 

Agave salmiana 'Green Giant' (Giant Agave) - This architectural succulent is recognizable by its thick, graceful, dark gray-green out-curving leaves with projecting spines and massive stature, reaching to 5-6 feet tall by twice as wide.

 

When the plant matures and blooms the tall candelabra inflorescence rises to over 20 feet bearing yellow flowers that attract birds and bees. Produces ample suckers which can lead to a large colony if suckers are not removed. Plant in full sun where it is drought tolerant.

 

Agave salmiana is considered to be the great winemaking agave "maguey de pulque" and was long cultivated for this purpose. This plant has also been in cultivation in Europe since the 19th century.

 

A real specimen agave; not for the timid but a really distinct looking plant! Use extreme care when working around or trimming any Agave. Not only are the spines wicked and cause a painful swelling if one is poked, but the sap of many species is caustic. Many a person has regretted using a chainsaw, which throws the juices back at the user, to trim an agave.
