This seed strain of Agave schidigera is from a collection near Durango, Mexico. As with the typical form, expect a non-offsetting 1' tall x 2' wide rosette of 1" wide flat green leaves. Each clump is highlighted by white leaf etchings and long white hairs...can you relate? The markings and hairs vary with each seedling. As with all agaves, winter drought is proportional to winter hardiness.
