Agave ocahui

Black-green foliage! 'Ocahui' is what the people of Sonora, Mexico call fiber or cordage. This agave is native to dry areas, where it is found perched on the edges of rock faces and cliffs. It has done very well in our climate, where it quickly forms a dense, dark-green rosette that is made up of numerous smooth, narrow spear-like leaves. Tolerates excessive moisture better than most agaves.
