agave americana

vikingboy2013February 22, 2012

I want to plant a variegated agave americana in my yard but theres not enough space for a full grown one. I was wondering if there was a way to plant the agave in the ground and to keep it in a dwarf form as to keep it from growing to its full size.

Those Neomexicana sunspots are beautiful agaves!

If you already have your agave you can try keeping it in a pot, and burying the pot.
