This is one of the few grey leaved agaves from the Caribbean islands. Agave albescens is an uncommon species endemic to the rocky hills of SE Cuba, especially by the coast. It grows as a mid-sized elegant rosette, with grey-yellow leaves and dark spines. It grows on rocks and it can be kept small in a pot for years. It makes few or no pups.

These clones are propagated in Tenerife since many years ago and they are descendants of the wild population of Yacabo Abajo.

We offer a bare-rooted plant of about 10-16 cm in diameter, grown in a 14 cm pot. Container size will just give you an idea of the size of the plant, because succulent plants are sent with bare roots, as they are very tolerant of bare-rooting. We ship worldwide.
