This small rock garden species is endemic to limestone outcrops in central Arizona at elevations up to 4,500'. Agave toumeyana makes individual rosettes to 1' tall x 1' wide with narrow, dark green leaves highlighted with dark brown margins and white bud imprints on the leaves. Agave toumeyana offsets to form a splendid tight colony resembling overweight hedgehogs at a feeding trough. Well-drained, rocky soils are important to be successful with Agave toumeyana. Mature plants are topped with 8' tall flower spikes.
