Agave mescal also known as Mescal Agave is naive to Mexico is seldom seen and rarely offered. A shapely rosette the center leaves recurved and concave , soft – fleshy , bright green , the margins irregularly undulated and crenate , with brown teeth on projecting cushions. A handsome speciman that is roughly tea cup shaped.
We had two or three of the Mescal Agave these growing in adjacent to the driveway , they never failed to draw attention to themselves and receive comments. Agave mescal can be grown in containers for quite a while but eventually get much to large for any container and must be moved to the the landscape.
As a house plant one must be careful of the sharp spine at the end of the leaf as well as the teeth on the leaf margins , easily dealt with by cutting them off with a pair of scissors.
We are offering for sale a well established plant 12 to 14 inches tall.
