Description

Agave parryi ssp parryi, Parry's Agave, is a medium-sized Agave with a range that extends north to Central Arizona, New Mexico and Texas and south into the Mexican states of Chihuahua, Durango and Guanajuato. It is one of the most hardy of all the Agave species and given good drainage is capable of surviving severe freezes and heavy snow with temperatures down to an extraordinary -20°C and probably as low as -25°C. The key is to ensure it has a very free-draining gritty substrate and although it will tolerate some wetness around its roots it is always better to keep it as dry as possible during the winter.

It is a medium-sized Agave and thus more suitable for urban gardens than the much larger but more often seen Agave americana. Agave parryi ssp parryi has a symmetrical globose rosette with a compact form and attractive light grey to bluish green leaves and will freely produce offsets.

For the British xerophytic garden, Agave parryi ssp parryi is an essential must-have plant.

First call for great plants and service Review by Ian
Absolutely delighted with the plants I received. Healthy, large, and robust plants with roots bursting from the pot. As usual advice is freely given and the service second to none. (Posted on 10/03/2021)
A beautiful Agave! Review by Paul
Very pleased with the healthy plant that I received. The root system was so well developed that I had to cut the existing pot off in order to repot it! I'd like to know how many years it took to reach this size. (Posted on 16/10/2020)
