Agarve Atenuata

Agarve Atenuata

Agarve Atenuata

This is an outstanding structural plant with wide grey leaves. Many agarves have quite dangerous spikes at the ends of the leaves but this partu¡icular variety has quite soft fleshy type leaves and is most attractive.
A bonus with this plant is that it will produce babies which can be removed and repotted.

It requires almost no watering.

They are readily available in garden centres.

This is a very beautiful plant with quite exotic flowers, either in pale pink, cerise or white.
These plants like a fairly shady place in the garden and should be watered regularly from the base. They flower late summer and will go on flowering through the autumn. Give them a feed once a week whilst flowering.

They are extremely reasonable in price and are readily available in garden centres. These also come in miniature form.
