Agave 'Crazy Horse' comes from Texan Shawn Stegent, who discovered it growing at a Montgomery County, Texas real estate office around 2000. For us, Agave 'Crazy Horse' seems to grow like an Agave salmiana hybrid. Our seven-year-old patch has produced 2' tall x 3.5' wide rosettes that offset quite fast. The 9" wide, flat, blue-green, deeply-lobed leaves are particularly architectural. Because of the somewhat scabrous leaf back, we wonder if Agave scabra might be the baby daddy, but then Agave cupreata looks like a candidate also.
