From the Sacramento Mountains of New Mexico comes this collection of the hardy A. neomexicana. Agave neomexicana makes small 2' wide suckering clumps of spiny blue-green foliage. In spring, a mature 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!
