Each rosette is monocarpic and grows slowly to flower only once. During flowering, a tall stem grows from the center of the leaf rosette and bears a large number of short, tubular flowers. After development of fruit, the original Agave plant dies, but suckers are frequently produced from the base of the stem, which become new plants.
The most beautiful species of Agave include: Agave ‘Blue Glow’, Agave vilmoriniana, Agave filifera, Agave geminiflora, Agave montana, Agave potatorum, Agave attenuata, Agave macroacantha, Agave desmettiana, Agave salmiana var. ferox, Agave victoriae-reginae, Agave bovicornuta, Agave americana, Agave angustifolia and Agave deserti.
