Agave filifera (thread agave) is a species of succulent plant in the family Asparagaceae, native to Central Mexico. Rosettes of spiny leaves with long white fibres produce dramatic 2.5-metre (8.2 ft) spikes of yellow flowers in autumn and winter.
This evergreen perennial plant requires heated indoor culture during winter in temperate regions, though it may be placed outside during summer months. It has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.
