Agave parryi Flagstaff, AZ 7000ft
Agave parryi has proven to be hardy in Colorado taking -22F on a few occasions. This particular form has been growing in our garden for 20+ years and bloomed several times. These have proven to get quite large reaching 36" accross and 30" tall.
The original seed for these were collected from Mt Eldon above Flagstaff, AZ at an elevation of 7000ft growing on a southern exposure with pinus ponderosa. This area gets lot of snow and but these do not seem to be as hardy as Agave neomexicana.
I do not guarantee these in a zone 5 because everyones growing conditions are different but this would be a good trial plant to grow in your cold outdoor garden. Try to plant outdoor 90 days before 1st hard freeze.
