Threadleaf Agave

Agave filifera

We’ve been growing these and selling these for years. We got a large clump for parent stock in about 8 years ago and have had them ever since. And yet I’ve never photographed one for the website or the blog. So here you go – a photo. For you!

The plant itself is only a 4″ size. We do have bigger ones as well. They will get about 2 feet across, but then they will clump and the clump can get a bunch bigger than that.

They are called Threadleaf, and filifera (meaning thread-leaf) because they have all those threads along the leaf margins. Some would say they are “filiferous“. Indeed!
