Agave Green Goblet is a Yucca Do selection of A. salmina var. ferox discovered near the Mexican Sierra Chiquita Mountains. Agave Green Goblet has very thick , dark green leaves (typically gray-green
in the species) that comprise an architectual clump to 4 feet tall by 3 feet wide. Works quite well in full sun and in well-drained soils.
