Description: Agave guiengola is a fairly fast growing agave with few soft succulent leaves. It’s uniquely shaped, silvery-bluish leaves makes it a very unique statement in the landscape and it is considered by some collectors to be the most spectacular large agave because of its sculptural form.

Flowers: The flowers attract hummingbirds.

Blooming season: Spring to summer. Typically it flower only at maturity once every 15-25 years and the main crown dies after blooming.

Cultivation and propagation: This is one of the few Agaves that might do best in some shade as the leaves tend to burn in hot blazing sun. It likes regular water but don't soak it wet as it seems to suffer from edema from over watering (They enjoy a little water during the winter period too). It's also somewhat cold sensitive, protect from freezing temperatures to avoid disfiguring the foliage.
