Agave parryi var. truncata Gentry are tissue cultured clones of a form collected by H.S. Gentry in Durango, Mexico, in 1951 and grown at the Huntington Botanical Gardens in San Marino, CA. The parent plant has broad blue gray leaves with purple black spines at their tips. Orange buds open to reveal yellow flowers. Agave can be sensitive to winter wet, however, they make fine container plants which can be protected from winter rains or excessive cold. We have grown a form of Agave parryi in a hot gravel bed for more than 10 years and it has never suffered.
