More info

Furcraea foetida 'Mediopicta' is a beautiful upright succulent with many features resembling an Agave, but don't be fooled!  It has long brightly variegated sword-like blades which will reach approximately 5 feet tall by 7 wide. And although the tips may be a bit pointy, there are no sharp cerrations on the edges.  False Agave makes a fantastic accent in a drought tolerant landscape.  Best used as s single specamin for a dramatic affect.  It takes a few years to the parent plant to bloom, but when it does, it's a spectacular 20 foot stalk with an off-white flower cluster.  Watering requirements and maintenance are both very low which makes it quite desirable for garden enthusiasts.  Try not to plant close to reflected heat/sun.  Hardy to about 25 deg. F.  Native to Brazil.
