Agave 'Silver Surfer' is a 2007 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction that we made from seedling of a 1992 Yucca Do seed collecting expedition (YD 45-83) at 5,200' in Palmillo, Tamaulipas, Mexico, where Agave americana ssp. protamericana intergrades with Agave asperrima. Agave 'Silver Surfer' has since formed a 5' tall x 9' wide clump of stiff, outfacing, silvery-blue leaves. This slow-offsetting agave is a favorite of garden visitors, so we are thrilled to finally have enough to share...get them while they last. The 20' flower stalk is amazing, not only for the terminal clusters of bright yellow, hummingbird-attracting flowers, but also for the surfboard-like flower stalk bracts.
