Its long, grey-green sword-like leaves form a basal rosette until it reaches maturity when it will start forming a thick trunk. Looking like a dramatically tall and narrow leafed Agave, this Furcraea can be used as a singular specimen or containerized for a minimalistic effect. False Agave is clean, adaptable and drought tolerant. Their leaves do have sharp, cat-claw-like teeth on the margins, so take care to not plant them in high traffic areas.
Please note that no two plants are exactly the same, that’s what makes them so unique! There may be some slight variations in height, width, amount of leaves, etc. We do our best to ensure your plants are consistent and keep our listings updated. As these are live plants, they change frequently.
We have the ability to procure hundreds of varieties of plants from 2 inches to 5 gallons. If you do not see what you are looking for, please send us a message and we will see if we can help!
DOMESTIC USA SHIPPING
Our horticulture experts will determine if the plant needs to be shipped in soil, based on the particular species, size, and your hardiness zone. In general, agaves, cacti, and succulents will be shipped without soil, called “bare root.” (see below) We will find the best freight carrier to your address. While our top priority is a healthy, happy plant delivery, unfortunately, we have no control over how carriers handle our packages, nor where they are dropped off.
All plants shipped beyond the USA mainland, including Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico, will be shipped “bare root.” (see below) All plants shipped internationally, including Puerto Rico, require a Phytosanitary Certificate from the US Department of Agriculture.
You can purchase the certificate in our shop here: https://rb.gy/0pmnd
Please check with your local customs department to see if you need any additional certifications, such as import permits. Note: while we have extensive experience and a track record of successful international plant shipments, we are unable to guarantee the plants' condition upon arrival.
BARE ROOT SHIPPING
This process simplifies shipping by dramatically decreasing the package weight, which keeps the cost of shipping as low as possible.
