Agave montana (Mountain Agave)

Agave montana
Mountain Agave

This medium-sized, solitary agave slowly develops a form reminiscent of a huge artichoke. The wide leaves are glossy green, with large teeth along the margins and a stout terminal spine. The large teeth create interesting imprints in the inner foliage. This native of northeastern Mexico is found at elevations up to 9,000 feet and is very tolerant of cold, heat, drought, and poor soils. In low deserts plant in part shade.
