Thanks to Brian Kemble for sharing seed of this interesting cross of Agave parrasana x colorata. We're not sure what to expect, so we've picked out a few to trial and are making the others available while they last. I would expect a nice blue rosette to 1' tall x 2' wide. Agave parrasana is fine in our climate, but Agave colorata isn't quite winter hardy, so I'd expect a good Zone 8 offspring, that could surprise us by going a bit colder.
