‘Parry’s agave’ or ‘mescal agave,’ is a rosette-formingsucculent that is native to grasslands, chaparral, desert scrub, pinyon-juniper and oak woodlands in Arizona, New Mexico and northern Mexico. It is most noted for its attractive blue-gray to gray-green evergreen leaves, but it also infrequently produces spectacular flowering spikes. Thick, rigid, smooth, ovate to oblong, blue-gray leaves (to 12” long) form a large, dense, symmetrical, basal rosette. A rosette will typically mature over time to 2’ tall by 3’ wide. Native Americans used this agave as a source of food, fiber, soap and medicine. Plant liquids may be fermented to form an alcoholic beverage called pulque which may be further distilled to form mescal or tequila. Reliably winter hardy to USDA Zones 7-10.
