Agave multifilifera | Chahuiqui

Grows in a dense rosette. Margins of the narrow leaves are loaded with filaments, which gives the plant a striking appearance, especially when backlit by the sun. Flower stalks reach high in the sky—to 15 feet—to show off the summer flowers. Provide a little more water in hot desert regions. Canopy coverage: 13 square feet.
