Agave lophantha 'La Bufa Baby' is a Peckerwood Gardens introduction of a plant originally collected by Peckerwood/Yucca Do in the Sierra Chiquita Mountains of Tamaulipas, Mexico. This unique selection boasts green leaves with a wide yellow central stripe, and the entire foliage frosted with a thin overlay of dusty blue. The 1' tall x 18" rosettes offset well to eventually form a 5' wide patch in 10 years. We're still not sure that Agave 'La Bufa Baby' isn't a natural hybrid with another species, since it looks so different from any other Agave lophantha we've ever encountered.
