This legendary blue Agave, which once was the sole species used to make tequila in Mexico, comes from near the town of Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico. Its leaves are blue-gray in color and lack marginal spines. The species offsets prolifically, which is how it persists since the flowering stalks of most plants are aborted to make liquor. We grow this species outside in Tucson, where the leaves have been damaged at 23F. These plants are seedlings in 5-inch pots.
