Australian Native Orchids. Native orchids range from the spectacular epiphytic (growing on trees) and lithophytic (growing on rocks) species of the tropical jungles and warmer areas of Australia, to the intricately subtle terrestrial (growing in the ground) species found throughout the dry eucalypts forests throughout the continent.
Agave 'El Miradores Gold' is a perennial succulent plant with large pointed grey-green leaves with bold gold edging, growing in a sculptural rosette of foliage. A very easy care, low maintenance plant. Grows to around 70cms high and wide. Great potted plants, garden specimens and for massed plantings.
Excellent waterwise plants, they are very drought hardy. Will grow in full sun as well as partial shade. Frost tolerant. Mulch with pebbles rather than regular mulch. Plant in a free draining soil, as boggy conditions can cause rot and the death of the plant.
Propagation is from small side plants called pups. Once large enough to handle, they can be pulled off from the main plant and potted up.
The plant has sharp ends and spines, take care when handling.
