We remember when we first saw a photo of the showstopping Agave gypsophila 'Ivory Curls' taken in Australia...true plant lust! Nearly a decade later, we were finally able to obtain a plant and now have some to share. Agave gypsophila 'Ivory Curls' is a standout...a showy selection of the unique gypsum century plant which hails from alkaline, gypsum-laden soils in southern Mexico. Each powder blue, wavy leaf is surrounded by a wide, pure white margin. In cultivation, the sparsely-offsetting 2' tall x 3' wide clump of Agave gypsophila 'Ivory Curls' usually flowers in 5-7 years, yielding small clonal plantlets from the flower stalk that form after the flowers fade. Where Agave 'Ivory Curls' isn't winter hardy, it makes a stunning potted plant...just keep the soil pH near or above neutral.
