Agave 'Durango Fandango' is a Plant Delights Nursery introduction, created by our Volunteer Agave Curator, Mike Papay, who crossed a Greg Starr collection, Agave schidigera 'Durango Delight' with pollen from Agave flexispina. We will be putting these in the ground for the first time in spring 2017, but we had such good seed germination, that we wanted to go ahead and share. With both parents winter hardy here in Zone 7b, the hybrid should have similar hardiness. As small plants, the seed strain Agave 'Durango Fandango' show amazing burgundy red tiny teeth on the sides of the leaf, and as young plants, most have a glaucous blue leaf. With both parents less than 2' tall x 3' wide, we expect a similar size for these seed-grown plants when they mature.
