XL True Mezcal Agave (agave karwinskii)

(XL Specimen, 6” Pot) An unusual Agave from the Mexican States of Oaxaca, Puebla and Veracruz, where it forms small colonies through creeping rhizomes in dry scrub or grassland at 6000 ft. elevation. From a distance it is easily mistaken for Yucca aloifolia, forming slender trunks up to 13 ft. tall, with elongated, upright crowns of stiff, succulent, pale green leaves. These are fiercely armed with black thorns along the margins and thus make a formidable living fence. It is very adaptable in cultivation and can take drought and moderate freezes.
