USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Details
18" tall x 18-30" wide (seed propagated). An incredible selection of Parry's Century Plant, the seed for our crop was collected on a brutally cold, exposed high-altitude plateau (6,800' elevation) south of Flagstaff in Coconino Co., Arizona. The silver-gray plants are growing in a clay-loam soil mixed with black volcanic boulders. Without question, this is one of the largest, most cold-hardy forms of Agave you can grow. Plant in a lean, well-drained soil where it will get plenty of sun and heat. In time, the plant will bloom with a towering 12' tall, flowering candelabra that will attract hummingbirds from miles around.
