The striking blue-gray leaves of Parry’s Agave offer texture and color to your landscape. Native to the high deserts of the Southwestern United States, this is one of the most cold-hardy agaves around. Black serrations around leaves, topped with a dangerous black tip contrast nicely with the blue-gray of the leaves. Little water is needed to keep this agave looking great. It flowers once at the end of its life, producing a 10 ft stalk of flowers that attracts pollinators and onlookers! Plant in groups in a well-drained soil under filtered shade for the most striking look to your landscape.

*Height and width estimated for growth in the Tucson, AZ area. True sizes may vary.
