Agave parryi

Common Name: Truncata Tulip Agave

Agave parryi, commonly known as Truncata Tulip Agave has beautifully symmetrical rosettes of blue colored leaves resemble the tightly wrapped petals of a tulip as it unfurls from the bud, with the added contrasts of black “teeth” along the margins and spike at the tip. Outer leaves leave permanent, bold, indentations of “teeth” on inner leaves still deep in the growing center. Natural sculpture at its best. Very hardy to all elements of heat and dryness; cold hardy to high teens. Will even tolerate light shade if on the dry side and/or good drainage.
