We are very excited about this beautiful agave from the Sonoran desert in northeastern Mexico (1,500'-4,500' elevation), where it can be found growing on volcanic limestone. The dense, dark-green leaves are edged in brown and tipped with a dark brown spine. Agave ocahui forms a solitary, symmetrical, 18" tall x 3' wide rosette. When the clumps mature, they are topped with a 9' tall narrow spike of bright yellow flowers. Agave ocahui var. ocahui has performed extremely well in our winters, although protection from winter moisture is still important.
