Ruta's favourite plant is Agave

My favourite plant is Agave. Such an understated plant - Agave can go weeks if not months without water (ideal plant for those who forget to water their plants) and is hardy enough to grow in our climate if given some winter protection. It will provide interest to any garden and can be a focal point in your rockery or grown in a pot on your patio. Very adaptable and will tolerate any reasonable type of soil with good drainage - certainly not as tricky to grow as one might think!
