This is a slow growing, but very hardy agave that is awfully tough from seed...hence we don't have this available very often. The solitary rosette of grey-green upright held leaves make a 3' tall x 3' wide clump...eventually! Hopefully before you die, you will enjoy the 8' flower spikes of incredible clouds of tiny golden flowers.
