Agave lechuguilla x Agave palmeri

Agave lechuguilla x Agave palmeri

Agave lechuguilla is probably in the top 5 for most cold hardy species of agave. Plants have taken -22F and -10s many times in my colorado garden. 

Agave palmeri is pretty cold hardy taking -17F and some severe cold.

 

We crossed the two cold hardiest locations and got this new hybrid. So far the 4" potsized seedlings have survived their first winter with no damage. We have no idea how cold hardy they may be but what we can say is these are very very slow growing plants. Some plants are blue with a midstripe and some are not striped or blue. So the hybrid is variable.

 

We share our experiences to help with your own trials of cold hardiness. We do not guarantee these plants in any garden or zone. Every garden is different and everyones growing conditions are different. Please try plants at your own risk, I do not want to be misleading to anyone.

 

WE NO LONGER HOLD ORDERS FOR SPECIFIC DATES. SEE SHIPPING INFORMATION FOR MORE DETAILS.
