Agave ovatifolia 'Lava Flow' is a 2019 Plant Delights Nursery introduction of an odd mutant that we selected years ago from Agave 'Vanzie' that didn't have any teeth. Okay, having no teeth is actually common with some species here in rural North Carolina, but not so much in the century plant world. This amazing Agave 'Lava Flow' forms a 3' tall x 5' mound of slick, wavy, glaucous blue leaves, whose form resembles the lava flow from a volcano. Since this is a non-offsetting clone, it took a bit of horticultural mutilation to entice it to produce enough offsets to share...what happens in the propagation department stays in the propagation department. We think Agave 'Lava Flow' is an exceptional selection and hope you will also.
