Agave Scabra   
Agaves are amazing exotic, drought tolerant plants. Native to Mexico and the North, Central and South of the United States, they are a very popular ornamental plants in the UK.
The Agave Scabra is very easy to grow needing very little maintenance. It is a stunning agave of average size. Characterized by large basal rosettes of rigid, slightly incurving leaves greyish green with beautiful pronounced patterns on their surfaces and a rough 'sandpapery' texture to their undersides. Typically having spiney margins and a sharp terminal point, it is better to plant them away from walkways.

Great for exotic gardens, it's bold silhouette makes a wonderful architectural centrepiece.
