(Parry's Agave, Parry's Century Plant)

One of the hardier agave species, Parry's agave is a beautiful succulent that originates from the alpine regions of Arizona and New Mexico. It is a more compact agave that sports wide, succulent gray-green leaves with fine, sharp, serrated edges of black. Its neat, evergreen rosettes slowly develop offshoots, or pups, which can easily be removed and replanted elsewhere if desired.

In summer mature rosettes put forth tall, upright panicles of fragrant, creamy yellow flowers. These may be pink...

The wide fleshy leaves narrow towards the top and end with a sharp black tip. Most agaves produce offsets around their base but this one is reluctant to do so, making propagation time consuming and plants more expensive....

Use this tough little Agave in hot dry regions where few small ornamentals will survive. This species is native to southern Arizona and New Mexico, extending southward into Sonora, Mexico. It has an informal, scruffy look and maintains a cast iron nature in rocky infertile ground. The leaves contain saponifiers and were harvested by indigenous people for soap.
