Agave garciae-mendozae - Century Plant

This listing is for 25 seeds of this newly described species of Agave.

Believed to be closely related to Agave horrida, which on first sight it closely resembles, the rosette gets up to 70cm across and the leaves have toothed edges which are a contrasting grey/ivory colour - the teeth in this species are as likely to curve forwards as the are to curve back, an interesting habit not found in other species. The leaves, as they unfold, show the imprint of the other leaves in the rosette and these markings persist for the life of the leave. The leaves are green, shading to a reddish purple when grown in full sun. Like all Agaves they only flower once, producing a graceful stem to 6 metres tall carrying numerous flowers. The plant sometimes produces offsets, but not all adults do this, so seed is the most reliable propagation method.

Over all, a charming Agave, unlikely to ever outgrow its welcome. Flowering (and therefore the end of the plant) occurs no earlier than 12 years and generally no later than 25 years.

It is easy to grow and cultivate. Easy to germinate following the instructions located at this link.
