These amazingly tough plants can endure extremes; hot sun, sandy soil, dry conditions and salty spots. You should water them from overhead. They are succulents and their leaves trap water and lead it to the roots. Make sure they are well drained, having it sit pooled in the soil can harm your plant. Can take up to 10 years to bloom. Very low maintenance plant. Also known as blue agave.
