Description

Agave parryi var. huachucensis grows predominantly in the mountains of the Coronado National Forest, including the Huachuca Mountains, in Cochise County, Arizona. Other smaller populations are found in the Dragoon Mountains to the west of the old ghost town of Pearce and there are scattered and isolated populations south of the border in Sonora, Mexico. It grows at elevations between 1550m and 2500m on open slopes and in mixed oak and pine forest, mainly Pinus ponderosa and Pinus engelmannii. At these elevations it gets cold in the winter and like the other members of the Agave parryi group, Agave parryi var huachucensis is extremely hardy, surviving down to at least -12C and probably lower as long as it has excellent drainage.

Agave parryi var huachucensis is more robust than the type species, Agave parryi ssp. parryi, with larger leaves, both broader and flatter. Another taxonomic difference is that it also has larger flowers.

Agave parryi var huachucensis is a gorgeous and very architectural Agave, its large rosettes of glaucous foliage forming blue-green explosions of living sculpture.
