Agave salmiana - Pulque Agave

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

Agave salmiana is a very large agave with strap-like leaves up to 1.5 metres long.  These are grey green and have a spine at the tip and variable spines on the edges of the leaves.  It forms a rosette up to 3.5 metres across, which will cluster from the base to form a large group of plants.  The plant produces a single flowering stem at the end of its life, turning all its energy reserves into the flowering.  The stem rise rapidly and can reach a height of 12 - 16 metres and produce several branches near the top which carry 1000's of yellow flowers.  The flowers are a source of agave nectar.  The plant is often cultivated and when flowering commences, the stem is cut and the sap collected.

This Agave is the primary source of the sap used to make Pulque - an alcoholic drink made from fermented Agave sap and a traditional drink from central Mexico.

The plant is only moderately hardy, withstanding light frosts and temperatures down to - 7 Deg C for short periods if dry at the roots.  Like most Agaves, it is easy to grow from seed.
