Agave albopilosa

1st March 2015

A newly discovered species from a cliffside in Mexico. It grows distinctive tufts of white hait from the leaf tips as it matures. I was lucky enough to obtain a young seeding and it has been slowly increasing in size for a couple of years.
Unfortunately there was a bit of a tragedy in spring 2016, and I lost it (to be exact, somebody stole it one night) so this is all I have to show. In the unlikely event that I can get another, I will try again. Pictures in habitat show perfect spiny globes of leaves with the sunlight shining on the white hairs. Quite wonderful.
