Agave parryi var. truncata
Little silver meatballs! A highly attractive form that eventually has leaves that are wider than long. The dusty silver-blue foliage is edged with black spines. It offsets freely and forms a mounding clump several feet across. A highly sought-after variety!
Notes and observations about this plant
- Not liking cold and wet by Kevin Tallon
- Bought three of these late last summer for my rock garden in Va Beach, Va. I would offer that if one is considering this for a colder wet climate like mine that they make sure they have well drained soil as mine survived the winter with 18" of snow at one point, but they took a lot of damage mainly from to much water.
