Agave funkiana 'Tug Boat II' is a fascinating Yucca Do/Wade Roitsch seedling that we are pleased to introduce for the first time in 2022. Agave 'Tug Boat II' is a painfully slow-growing, ploidy mutant of the Northern Mexico native Agave funkiana, which is similar to Agave x pumila. Our seven-year-old, rarely-offsetting parent plant is 10" tall x 1' wide, composed of thickened, triangular glaucous blue foliage. Because of the slow growth rate, Agave 'Tug Boat II' is an ideal container plant for collectors.
