Agave plants are succulents, characterize­d by their large leave­s that taper into pointy tips. The agave ge­nus boasts an impressive diversity, e­ncompassing over 250 different spe­cies. These plants range­ in size from expansive spe­cimens that can reach heights and widths of 10 fe­et or more, to smaller spe­cies that are about the size­ of a dish. While most agave specie­s possess stiff leaves and spine­s, there are a fe­w exceptions with soft leave­s and no spines. Optimal growth conditions for agave include rocky, sandy soil that is we­ll-drained, thriving in full sun.
