Parry's Agave

Plant Sizing Guide

Parry's Agave, scientifically known as Agave parryi, is a striking succulent native to the southwestern United States and northern Mexico. This agave species is renowned for its rosette of fleshy, gray-green leaves, which are thick, rigid, and end in sharp, pointed tips. The leaves often have pronounced white markings along the edges, adding to its ornamental appeal. Parry's Agave is well-adapted to arid environments and is often found in rocky or mountainous landscapes. It is highly drought-tolerant and prefers well-draining soil. This agave typically follows a slow growth pattern but, when mature, produces a tall flower spike with yellowish-green blossoms. With its resilient nature and captivating form, Parry's Agave is a popular choice for xeriscape gardens and succulent enthusiasts seeking a visually striking and low-maintenance plant.
