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 xeriphytic garden, Agave parryi ssp parryi is an essential must-have plant.

These are very large plants despite their small pot size. They have been grown hard and have reached an extraordinary size for such a small pot. Bargain!

Very nice Agave Review by Callum
As with all the plants sold on the website, Tropical Britain have gone to great lengths to provide their customers with useful, interesting and well written information on the plants they sell. I often use this website for reference purposes. No other online seller compares in this respect. The informative description allowed me to choose the most suitable species/ssp. for my garden. The Agave arrived in great condition and for a very good price. (Posted on 24/01/2014)
