Parry's Agave

Parry's Agave

Parry's Agave is a rosette-forming perennial native to the deserts of North and Central America. The plant generally likes drier soils and full sun and provides unique geometry and a slate gray/blue foliage to accent a sun garden. This plant, where hardy, is an evergreen which will retain its rosette of foliage into the winter.

Soil

While it does tolerate most soils, Parry's Agave prefers well-drained loamy soil that is quite fertile. Sandy or shallow rocky soil is good too. Maintain a slightly alkaline pH between seven and eight. Established plants can tolerate slightly acidic soil too.
