Agave albopilosa (White Hair Agave) - A clump forming plant that forms a rosette that reaches to 1 foot tall by nearly 2 feet wide with narrow upturned mid-green colored leaves that are thick with a ridged texture and at their tips hold white tufts of short white hairlike fibers around and obscuring the terminal spine. When flowering occurs a unbranched spike rises 2 to 4 feet with greenish purple flowers emerging from dark purple buds the top half of the flower spike. Plant in full to part sun in a well-drained soil and irrigate occasionally. Hardiness on this newly discovered species is not well documented as most are being greenhouse grown but our own plants have weather short duration temperatures down to 30°F and there is speculation it is hardy down to 25°F or less. With more trying this plant in colder locations we hope to learn more about its cold tolerance.
