Agave palmeri is a common species widely distributed in southeastern Arizona and the adjacent Mexican states of Sonora and Chihuahua. The rosettes get quite large and are solitary, but these plants are a dwarf form from seed collected near Sonoita, Arizona. The leaves are blue-green and lancheolate, and the undulate margin is lined with relatively small and regularly spaced spines. This species probably can withstand low temperatures between 0-10F. These plants are seedlings in 5-inch pots.
