AGAVE

GAVECommon namehardy century plant
Familyagavaceae
Life cycleperennial
Size15"
Lightsun
Cultural noteswell-drained soil

Most sources list this agave as hardy only in zones 9-10; Plant Delights Nursery extends it to Z7-10; and there are reports of hardiness in zone 6 (see links below). I picked up a tiny 2nd-year plant at the HPS/MAG plant sale, and set it in our rock garden to see if it survives.
