This form of Agave palmeri is our seedling selection from a population of plants growing near Divisadero, in the northern Mexican State of Sonora. We found this form to be quite distinct from all of the AZ populations that we have visited. The tall silver-blue leaves, edged with hundreds of tiny teeth, and with great bud imprinting, form a 3' tall x 3' wide (in 7 years) slowly-offsetting clump...quite dramatic.
