I can’t believe Blue Agave is used to make tequila ……. 😀
I considered It was like for serving the purpose of landscaping and hedging….
Well ,I never heard and saw this succulent plant ever , this was first time when I saw this plant while on my short trip to nearby countryside location , I was taking the pictures I assumed as a normal succulent plant like other’s. it was so capitatvive because of its giant structure.
It’s more like a huge plant that can reach up to 2 meter height with its spiky succulent. It’s leaves which are green in color covers huge area of ground. The overall appearance was rough, hard and thorny.
Blue agave is native of Mexico which is commercially cultivated as the main ingredient for tequila. This is fast growing and evergreen succulent plant. Unlike other plants , Agave got a good reputation and tremendous quality that cannot be beaten.
