This collection of the cold-hardy Agave parryi comes from 7,000' elevation around Mimbres, New Mexico, where the population is much larger than normal, reaching 4'+ in width and 2.5' in height. These gigantic specimens are found in large colonies with up to 10 huge rosettes. The medium-width leaves are slightly darker than the typical Agave parryi. Here's your chance to amaze and astound your friends. We have also found these very useful in reducing the incidence of burglars and Peeping Toms...one plant per window and...problem solved!
