Agave 'Mateo' is a unique new century plant that was discovered as a seedling in a block of Agave bracteosa at San Marcos Growers of California. We are uncertain about the other parent, but speculate that an amorous Agave lophantha may be the baby daddy. The non-spiny, 18" tall x 3' wide, squid-shaped rosette of rough green leaves is highlighted by a central muted chartreuse-yellow stripe down the middle of each leaf. Agave 'Mateo' has survived for us outdoors since 2010, which includes a winter low temperature of 7 degrees F.
