Agave Guiengola 'Creme Brulee', drought tolerant succulents and plants.

Agave ‘Creme Brulee’ is the variegated form of an Agave Guiengola, the “Whales Tail” agave. Succulents are able to store water in their leaves, stems, and roots, giving them their fleshy appearance. The massive, fleshy, leaves of the Agave Guiengola and its variegated counterpart ‘Creme Brulee’ are tremendous examples of a succulents succulence. Many smaller succulents, Graptoveria Opalina and Pachyveria Glauca, are also strong examples of succulents with a swollen appearance. As a general rule, water these more fleshy varieties less than their thinner leaf cousins, Aeonium Urbicum and Echeveria Afterglow
