Agave deserti var. simplex displays rosettes of medium-sized, stunningly blue-gray, pointed, strap-like leaves with dark banding. This plant is an awesome host for butterfly larvae. An easy care, drought tolerant plant that is great in landscapes and containers or can adapt as a houseplant. Provide a well drained soil away from reflected heat. Once established, water infrequently during the hot season.
Be careful when handling this plant! Desert Century Plant has extremely sharp, needle-like spines at the leaf tips!
