Agave parryi

Parry's Agave is a rosette-forming perennial native to the deserts of North and Central America. Parry's Agave produces larger leaves and rosettes than many of its sub-species. It consists of compact, nearly round rosettes of gray-green leaves that grow 7-20 inches in length. Leaves have marginal teeth as well as a stout tooth on the tip.

Parry's Agave ultimately forms colonies of many offsets. The mother plant will bloom once, usually during the summer, then die. Flowers grow from tall stalks that have the potential to rise to around 10-20' tall. It has a slow growth rate and requires little to no water. This agave does best in full sun or filtered sunlight. Little maintenance is required when plants are given ample room to spread.

This plant is used by Indigenous peoples in the Americas to make fibers and soap as well as food and medicine.
