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

Alamogordo, NM
My plants did very well in all extremes--from 102 to -11, in Alamogordo, NM. It suffered only minor frost damage to one or two leaves at the cold end, with heavy snow.

It was planted in soil with a lot of clay, but not watered much once it was established.

The climate was also very dry. (Posted on 11/18/2013 by Cathy ).
Not liking cold and wet
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.
