Agave Americana Green
Flowering: The flowers of the Agave americana is green-yellow in color and can grow up to 8cm in length in clusters. These flowers grow on a large stem that reaches heights much taller than the actual plant. This species is monocarpic which means it will only flower once in its lifetime then the plant dies.
The plant can live for up to 10 – 30 years, not quite a century.
Foliage: The foliage of the Century plant consists of rosettes that are rigid but rather fleshy along with leaves that have spiny edges. It is gray-green in color.
There is also the Agave americana marginata (variegated ) variety that displays green leaves with yellow edges which I find more attractive.
