Agave parryi v. truncata
Artichoke Agave, Parry's Agave

The dense symmetrical form and wide blue-gray leaves make this one of the most ornamental agaves available. Found along the Durango-Zacatecas border in Mexico, it grows in grasslands at 7500 feet in elevation. Eventually this plant produces many offsets, forming large colonies.
