Agave bracteosa

11th February 2014

A curious species with twisted grey-green leaves that lack the usual dangerous adornments. When seed first became available it was touted as one of the hardiest species and then a hard winter demonstrated that it wasn't. My own plant was turned to ochre mush overnight.
This is a replacement - I decided that even if it wasn't as hardy as hoped, the odd shaped rosettes were worth growing.
