Large, hardy succulent with a trunk up to 1.5m high, topped with a rosette of blue-grey leaves. Eventually produces a 3m – 4m tall spire of pale-green flowers. This superior form does not die after flowering like other varieties of Furcraea. Excellent for large containers or small gardens. Needs good drainage and full sun. Furcraea guatemalensis (Guatemalan Furcraea) is an evergreen tree that grows at a moderate rate to reach 2.5m (H) x 2m (W) in 10 years.
