This collection of rarely-offsetting blue-grey foliaged Agave havardiana comes from Brewster County in West Texas. It is described by the folks at Mesa Gardens as being a form with "whopper rosettes." I'm not sure if the term "whopper" refers to the plants resembling hamburgers or simply the size of the plants being very hope is the latter. I guess we'll find out soon, since my plants are already in the ground. Regardless, keep all buns far away from these whoppers.
