Agave parryi v. truncata

Artichoke Agave

The dense symmetrical form and wide blue-gray leaves make this one of the most ornamental agaves available. Found along the Durango-Zacatecas border in Mexico, it grows in grasslands at 7500 feet in elevation. Eventually this plant produces many offsets, forming large colonies. A tall branching flower spike hoIds clusters of yellow flowers. This clone was obtained from the Huntington Botanical Garden and is grown by tissue culture to ensure consistency. Plant in full sun or light shade.
