This is the most widespread Agave in Mexico and Central America, and it is very common in cultivation. The medium to large rosette tends to sparsely offset until flowering, when it sends out numerous clones. The deeply guttered leaves are narrow and linear with sharp terminal spines. Numerous cultivars exist, but we offer the typical form. These plants are moderately frost hardy, taking leaf-margin damage below 25F. These plants are rooted bulbils in 5-inch pots.
