Agave palmeri is a tough-as-nails, medium-to-large-growing agave, endemic to central and southern Arizona and New Mexico. Agave palmeri has 2" wide, glaucous leaves that are lined with small, reddish spines, each one ending in a large and wonderfully sinister spine! For us, some forms of Agave palmeri refuse to offset, making a striking, solitary clump. The wait for the fabulous 25'+ flower stalk is well worth it...holy cow...or I guess, it's actually holy water buffalo!
