Agave x pumila 'Clusterfest' is a dwarf, rapidly offsetting form of the already miniature hybrid Agave x pumila (Agave victoriae-reginae x lechuguilla). The small 2"-4" wide rosettes are composed of a few wide, but deeply-channeled, matte-finished green leaves. Agave x pumila has never been known to flower due to its miniscule size...perfect for fairy and gnome gardens. This form of Agave x pumila seems to offset faster than other forms we've grown. We expect where Agave x pumila 'Clusterfest' is winter hardy in the ground, it may eventually grow larger than we've seen in containers. We couldn't find where this had ever been given a proper cultivar name, so we took care of that. Based on its parentage, it should have good winter hardiness, but due its small size, it will need to be kept bone dry in the winter to have any chance.
