This agave is only found growing in the Chihuahuan desert. It grows in the free draining soils and is exposed to extremes of heat and cold. The dense upright habit stands up to 1m high and the stiff blue-green leaves will form clumps of plants as they mature. This culminates with it flowering with a flower spike up to 4.5m tall. Masses of flowers are formed, the petaless purple flowers are full of nectar and this attracts bird, insects as well as bats. Hardy to -7.5c if protected from wet conditions.
