Agave celsii (also referred to as Agave mitis) is a plant species native to the Mexican states of Hidalgo, Tamaulipas and San Luis Potosí. Agave mitis forms rosettes of blue-green to yellow-green, fleshy leaves up to 60 cm long.
Agave celsii is a large plant with rosettes that will grow to 60cm in height and width. The flat leaves with serrated edges and pointed tips are blue/green in colour and the teeth and tips are cream. The flowers are green on 2.5m stems. With its light silvery green soft leaves, this is a very pretty agave for containers, cactus and succulent beds and borders. The terminal spines are somewhat flexible and softer than most agaves, allowing it to be placed closer to pedestrian traffic.
