Agave potatorum var. verschaffeltii

20th November 2009

Agave potatorum is a very variable species, the var.verschaffeltii is probably of no taxonomic significance, but it usually refers to the dwarfer and more glaucous forms. This is a juvenile plant and only time will tell what it will grow into.

Time has not been kind to it - more exactly, time in the cold. The species is not especially hardy and this one is in trouble.

Whoops. Inevitably winter has finally caught up with it. I have killed several over the years in exactly this way and I always hope that the latest will be the last, but they are so lovely, compact and glaucous as young plants that I may well try again.
