Agave parryi huachucensis is a succulent plant species that is native to the Southwestern United States and northern Mexico. Its natural range includes the Chiricahua Mountains of southeastern Arizona, the Huachuca Mountains of southeastern Arizona and adjacent New Mexico, and the Sierra Madre Occidental in Sonora and Chihuahua, Mexico.

Agave parryi huachucensis is cold-hardy and can tolerate temperatures down to around 10 degrees Fahrenheit, which makes it well-suited for growing in cold climates. However, it is important to note that the plant's cold tolerance may vary depending on the specific growing conditions, such as soil moisture and exposure to wind.

In terms of mature size, Agave parryi huachucensis typically grows to be around 2-3 feet tall and 2-4 feet wide. It is a slow-growing plant, and can take several years to reach full maturity. The plant's leaves are fleshy, thick, and usually gray-green in color, with sharp, pointed tips and distinctive white markings along the margins.

Agave design and application suggestions:

Agaves are a wonderfully diverse group of plants. Agaves can be small and solitary like our Agave victoria-reginae or big and bold like our Agave americana variegata. Equally suited for container gardening or used in landscape applications with proper climate conditions. Group small and mid-sized agaves in the landscape for impact and place larger agaves to add big bold accents. You can do the same with container gardening. A mix of different sized agaves with different growth habits, leaf shapes and colors in nice containers can give any room or patio an impactful artistic boost.

Why purchase our Agave?

Our agaves are grown in their native habitat right here in Southern Arizona. Raised outdoors with just the right amount of water and fertilizer, they come to you in their natural form.

Love the shape of my plant

I love the narrow the leaves on this agave plant. I got mine a while back and it has grown quite a bit lager since.
