Description Cultural Notes Plant Care
 
Agave geminiflora (Agave).The twin-flowered agave has amazing versatility, tolerating exposures ranging from morning sun and reflected heat, to full shade. This accent plant forms a dense, symmetrical rosette of narrow, dark green leaves, to about 3 feet across. In full sun, the leaves are stiff and straight, and the sharp terminal spines can be a hazard. In shady exposures the leaves relax to form a softer silhouette. At the end of its life cycle, which averages about 10 years in cultivation, this plant will send up a spectacular 15-18 foot tall flower spike, with pairs of pale yellow blooms along the stem. Twin-flowered agave should be planted in well-drained soil, and receive minimal irrigation. It does benefit from irrigation and will start to shrivel when too dry. Gardeners in colder climates can plant this in portable containers and move them indoors when temperatures fall below 25 degrees.
