twin flowered agave

twin flowered century plant

Medium-sized, rosette-forming, slow growing, frost tolerant (min. -5 °C), evergreen perennial (H 90-120 cm, W 70-100 cm), slowly spreading by side rosettes. Leaves in a large, dense, ground-level rosette, linear (30-50 cm, eventually more), very narrow, sharply pointed, bright green to brown-green. Flowers in loose inflorescence on upright stems, yellow. Flowering period: June-August, an individual rosette dies after flowering. Requires very sufficiently drained, partly sandy soils, in hot, sunny sites. Not hardy in central-european continental climate, grown as an indoor pot-plant or a container-plant.
  • Plants for destinctively sunny sites need and tolerate a lot of direct sun radiation (eg. roses, even more spurge (euphorbia myrsinites) , sea buckthorn, sedum, most of rock-garden plants, cactuses etc). Mostly, but not necessarily, these plants can also tolerate drought. Roses need more water and noursihments and rich, deep, fetile soil, while white stonecrop survives more weeks in dry soil without rain or watering and can grow normally in poor, sandy soil as well.

  • Herbaceous plants are not woody. Their stems are soft, usually remaining green. With some herabceous older stems may harden and look like woody stems (e. g. bamboo).

  • Leaves or needles remain on the plant for several consecutive years, usually 2 to 5 years. Our descriptions contain the word evergreen.

  • Plant can in otherwise appropriate environment survive cold down to - 6 °C.

  • Porous or dry soils are normally light and loose, there is no stagnant water but relatively quickly flows in deeper layers; such ground are more airy and warmer, yet drier and usually contain less humus and for such undergrowth it is often to for drought to appear (e. g. rockgardens, walls, by paths and roads, on gravel, also on gravel surface in towns and close to buildings ...), plants of such undergrowth need well-drained soil, they tolerate drought but cannot tolerate constant moisture or even flooding.

  • Herbaceous, not woody plant. Stems and leaves may be evergreen or deciduous - thus regrowing every spring. Perennials may blossom consecutively for several years. Some perennials develop special underground organs - bulbs, corms or rootstocks and these species are treated separetelly, not with geophyte and tuberous plants.

Velik del pestrosti in barvitosti, ki jo v vrtove prinašajo okrasne rastline, prispevajo ravno trajnice. Pri tem imamo v mislih plamenke, homulice, perunike, maslenice, telohe, hoste, zelnate potonike, jesenske astre in še številne druge. Že... next...
