*RETAIL - Agave ocahui

This symmetrical and architectural century plant from Sonora -- to under 18" to 2 ft with shiny forest-green leaves and cream to mahogany edges -- is underutilized in both garden and container. The flower stems are quite narrow, to 12 ft or more in height after several years, but it is really the unusual rosette we are after. Our favorite specimen is in a deep brown Chinese urn that reflects the color of the leaf margins. Low to medium nutrients maintain compact growth. This collection, by Greg Starr from one of its northern sites a few miles south of the Arizona border, has been frost hardy to nearly 10F with good drainage. Protect in containers below upper USDA zone 8.
