We grew this seed batch of Agave ovatifolia and it was soon obvious there had been some romantic hanky panky in the high desert mountains of Northern Mexico where these originated. The resulting offspring from the tryst appear to be hybrids of Agave ovatifolia with the lovely Agave parrasana and possibly Agave asperrima (scabra). The foliage of Agave 'Desert Love' ranges from wide to narrow with an assortment of recurved leaf tips, spine patterns, but almost consistently blue foliage...unlike the mostly green Agave ovatifolia hybrids we offer as 'Huasteca Giant'. You may want to try several, since each individual is different. We anticipate most plants will mature in the 2' tall x 6' wide range, but there will be some smaller and some larger. You could just attend our Open Nursery and Garden Days and pick out your own.
