Description

Agave parryi ssp neomexicana - Century Plant

This listing is for a pack of 20 seeds of this beautiful and very hardy Agave.

Agave parryi, known as Parry's agave or mescal agave, is a slow-growing agave native to Arizona, New Mexico, and northern Mexico.

The leaves are grey green and have a spine at the tip. One of the distinguishing features is that the point on the tip, which is typically dark tan, brown, or black, is darker than the leaf. Indentations of previous leaves show on the back of each leaf. It requires full sun and very good drainage. It is hardy to roughly minus 21 Deg C, though there are reports of specimens surviving temperatures at minus 28 Deg C. My own plant has survived 3 protracted freezes in Lincolnshire over the last 10 years , with minus 15 Deg C registering on the Max/Min.

Parry's Agave is evergreen. Aged agaves produce a twelve-foot stalk with bright yellow blooms. They then die after blooming, as all leaf and root resources are put into the stalk, flowers, and seeds. It can be propagated by either offset or seed.

This is probably the best Agave for the temperate garden, tough and resistant to most pests (even my rabbits couldn't make a dent in the leaves).
