This collection of Agave neomexicana hails from Artesia, New Mexico at around 3500' elevation. Agave neomexicana makes rosettes of blue-green foliage to 1' long. Agave neomexicana forms suckering offsets around the base of the mother plant...a very elegant specimen for the hot rock garden. In spring, a mature 2' wide specimen may be topped with a gigantic 10' tall flower spike adorned with cloudlike yellow tufts of flowers on both sides of the stalk....bizarre! Agave flowers attract hummingbirds.
