Agave ovatifolia (giant) 10 seeds

The fabulous Agave ovatifolia was first brought to the U.S. by the late Lynn Lowery, who found it growing between 3000 and 7000′ elevation in Nuevo Leon, Mexico. It was planted around Dallas and survived decades unscathed by drought or cold. We have also received several reports of surviving -5 degrees F when kept dry. Agave expert, Greg Starr, curious to know his identity, returned on Lynn’s route and found the original population in Mexico, where it was determined on a new species and then named in 2002. In shape, Agave ovatifolia looks like an Agave parryi on steroids, forming a 36″ long x 5″ wide (in 5 years), symmetrical clump of wide gray juicy leaves. It has proven to be one of the best agaves for cold, wet climates, much better than almost all other species.
