Native to southeast Arizona and northeast New Mexico, Agave parviflora is a strikingly beautiful dwarf agave that features narrow, dark green leaves with dramatic white markings on the upper surface. Agave parviflora will eventually have a 5' tall bloom spike, which for us usually happens in 5-10 years. Agave parviflora doesn't offset, but it produces small plantlets on the top of the flower stalk after flowering is finished.
