This is a new collection of Agave macroculmis from 9,400' elevation in La Encantada, Mexico. This collection by John Fairey and Bobby Ward should prove to be extremely cold hardy. Since we haven't seen this one mature, we can only assume that it will resemble typical A. macroculmis, which makes a 4-5' wide specimen of silver-grey leaves. The quantities are very limited.
