Agave ovatifolia 'Orca' is already a plant of legend, discovered in the mountains of Northern Mexico. This stunning selection of Agave ovatifolia has blue leaves bordered by a very wide creamy yellow edge. We expect the mature size to be 2' tall x 4' wide. Thanks to expert horticultural techniques, the plant was propagated for ex-situ conservation purposes, while the original clone remains high in the Mexican mountains. We are pleased to finally have enough to share, although we are sure that they will sell out quickly since we paid double this for our original plant, plus airfare to California.
