(syn: Agave asperrima ssp. potosiensis) This form of Agave scabra comes from the central Mexico State of San Luis Potosi. As compared to the other forms of Agave scabra, these have more silvery-white foliage and broader leaves which recurve toward the tips. The 3' tall x 6' wide clumps make stunning specimen plants which sucker moderately well.
