Agave parryi

Parry Agave

Blue-green, thick and spiny sword-like leaves form a basal rosette about 18" across. After many years, a tall flowering spike can shoot up to 12 ft. After flowering, the mother plant dies. Off-shoots from the base continue to grow, forming a colony. Parry Agave is loved by hummingbirds, thrashers, bees and all insects. Very hardy to -20 F. Sow seed in spring. Zones 5-8.
