Posts Tagged ‘Agaves’

Not only are Agaves extremely easy to maintain and have an excellent sculptural quality, they also add drama to any garden. They grow best in Mediterranean and Southwest climates, but can also be grown in containers in colder climates as long as they are protected in the winter. Agaves are incredibly versatile and look gorgeous in many different garden styles from Mediterranean to traditional. They are possibly one of my favorite plants to add to a garden.

Agaves look fantastic planted with ground cover like sedum or simply planted in gravel, as in the above photo.
