Mountain Rosette Agave (agave montana)

The Queen of Agave, it not only is the most beautiful but the most suitable for growing in climates with cold, wet winters. Native to northeastern Mexico, it grows up to 3500 m (11500 ft.) basically as an understory plant in pine and oak forests, where the summers are cool and winters hostile. Snow, ice and subzero temperatures are the norm for these high hillsides and this Agave could reasonably be expected to survive -15?C (5?F) even in damp conditions. This is not a desert plant! Agave Montana grows as a large, dense, solitary rosette of wide, powdery gray-green leaves with reddish thorny margins and terminal spine.
