Agave colorata hybrid

Common Name: Hybrid Big-Tooth Blue Agave

Similar to its parent, Agave colorata, this Agave grows slightly larger to a size of 2′ tall by 3′ wide. Even larger, bolder black teeth on dramatic blue leaves, with more leaves forming fuller rosettes of foliage. Same toothed etching on flat surfaces of leaves resulting from imprints made when emerging leaves were tightly rolled up. When they do bloom (from a rosette as young as a few years old) they send spikes up to 15′ tall in as little as 2 or 3 months, bearing honey golden flowers. Plants pup freely at base, forming full clumps. Water-wise; full sun. Hardy to the high teens.
