Agave 'Crazy Horse' comes from Texan Shawn Stegent, who discovered it growing at a Montgomery County, Texas real estate office around 2000. For us, 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. Based on observations by Daniel Serrano, we not believe Agave 'Crazy Horse' to be a hybrid of Agave cupreata and Agave asperrima.
