Description

Because Agave pelona can be found growing with Bursera microphylla, Echinocereus species, and Fouquieria splendens, it certainly can be combined with these and similar plants in a creative landscape. Some other recommended companion plants include: Calliandra eriophylla, Dasylirion wheeleri, Encelia farinosa, Ferocactus species, Penstemon species, Verbena gooddingii and Viquiera deltoidea. The toothless leaves that have a propensity to develop a rich purple or reddish purple color when stressed along with the long, needle-like terminal spine make this a truly unique species. A great plant for full, blazing sun in the hot, desert southwest. No speed demon this one, you will get to enjoy the splendid spines and colorful leaves for a long time before you are rewarded with a tall stalk of deep, wine-red flowers.
