The Butterfly Agave, also known as Agave potatorum cv. Shoji-Raijin, is a unique and stunning succulent that is native to Mexico. It is a small to medium-sized plant that typically grows to be 30-60 cm in height and 60-90 cm in width. The plant forms a rosette of thick, fleshy leaves that are green in color and can grow up to 30 cm in length and 12 cm in width.
The leaves of the Butterfly Agave are adorned with striking white markings that resemble butterfly wings. The plant produces offsets or “pups” at the base of the rosette, which can be easily propagated to produce new plants. The Butterfly Agave is a hardy plant that is well-suited for growing in pots or in rock gardens. It requires well-draining soil and full sun to thrive.
In the summer months, the Butterfly Agave produces a tall stalk that can reach up to 3 meters in height, topped with clusters of creamy-white flowers that attract pollinators such as bees and butterflies. Once the flowers have bloomed, the plant will produce small bulbils or offsets, which can be used to propagate new plants.
Overall, the Butterfly Agave is a stunning and low-maintenance succulent that is perfect for adding a touch of exotic beauty to any garden or indoor space. Its distinctive white markings on its green leaves make it a standout addition to any collection of succulents, and its striking flowers add to its allure.
