Zingara Gypsum Century Plant
Item #: 16024
Height: 20" tall
Pot Size: 3.5" pot (24 fl. oz/0.7 L)
Agave gypsophila 'Zingara' is our first offering of a new variegated seedling selection of the Mexican native Agave gypsophila from California Agave guru, Kelly Griffin. For us, Agave 'Zingara' has a much more upright growth form than any other variegated selections we have grown, and is the only variegated form of Agave gypsophila ssp. gypsophila...all the others are Agave gypsophila ssp. pablocarrilloi. The nice white-edged, 3.25" wide leaves have the most recurved tips of any Agave gypsophila we've grown. Our oldest specimen is 20" tall x 3' wide.
