Agave americana ssp. americana
A very large Agave with broad, succulent, bluish leaves in a rosette that can reach a diameter of up to 4 m (13 ft.). It is widely cultivated throughout most of Mexico and elsewhere in the world, and in many places, such as the Mediterranean, has escaped from cultivation. Its wild origin, however, is not clearly known. It is a very easy plant in cultivation, robust, fast growing and holds up well to drought and moderate freezes.
