Crystal bowl agave! We originally made this selection of Agave montana in 1997 on one of our trips to Mexico. We have grown it for many years and have been impressed with it all along. But it offsets slowly, making it impractical to offer in our catalog. Now, because of the miracle of tissue culture, we can offer this plant to the public. The bud imprinting and coloration on the leaves remind one of the multi-faceted effect found in fine-cut crystal, thus the cultivar name alludes to the famous Baccarat Crystal. ***We believe that this plant is a natural intergrade of A. gentryi and A. montana.
