Native to oak woodlands from Arizona to northern Mexico from 5,000' to 7,000', Agave parryi ssp. huachucensis is the largest member of the hardy Agave parryi group. The very wide, steely blue-grey foliage makes a striking rosette (in more ways than one) to 2' wide. In about 15 years, the clumps are topped with giant Jack and the Beanstalk-like flower spikes to 12' tall! The leaves of Agave parryi ssp. huachucensis are flatter and wider, but not as thick as A. parryi ssp. parryi. As with all agaves, winter drainage is absolutely critical for survival in cold climates.
