Agave horrida ssp. perotensis is a little-known century plant from southern Mexico (Veracruz and Puebla) that has thrived in our NC garden since 2005. Agave horrida ssp. perotensis is essentially a non-offsetting Agave lophantha with large papery spines which emerge tan and age to parchment white. Agave horrida ssp. perotensis makes a very attractive 2' tall x 3' wide clump of 3" wide leaves with a muted lighter stripe down the middle. We see some leaf burn on our clump when temperatures drop into the single digits.
