This Mesa Garden seed collection of Agave palmeri comes from near the Coronado National Forest east of Sonoita, AZ (southeast of Tucson). The original specimen is described as being a grey-green toothy rosette. Sounds like my cousin Bubba, except for the toothy part. Our plants are still small, but you can expect a 3' tall x 3' wide solitary clump when mature.
