18-24" tall x 24-30" wide (seed propagated). Native to southeastern New Mexico, this is one of our most cold hardy Agave species. The main rosette of foliage is large, heavily armed with dark burgundy spines and often spouts smaller "suckers" around its base. When the plant matures sufficiently to bloom (after many years of slow growth), it sends up a huge 12-15' tall flowering spike that will attract hummingbirds from miles around.
