SKU: N/A Category:


Agave bovicornuta looks great when planted under a small tree in a highly visible spot to best appreciate the intricate patterns created by the ornamental teeth. Mix this agave with green, lush-looking plants under a ferny-leaved desert shade tree such as Acacia berlandieri or Lysiloma watsonii var. thornberi to create a subtropical effect. Some plants that are quite compatible include Cycas revoluta, Dalea capitata, Dioon edule, Justicia spicigera, Poliomintha maderensis,and Salvia greggii. Use up close or in a large decorative container to show off the rich green leaves and the very colorful, cool-looking teeth that produce interesting bud imprints.
