Info

We've grown Agave parryi from all along its native range, but the best clone is still the one growing at the JC Raulston Arboretum in NC. We tracked this clone back to a plant that came from J.C.'s 1979 trip to California's Strybing Arboretum. Strybing obtained their plant from California professor Jack Napton in 1971. This special clone forms large symmetrical 2' tall x 3' wide rosettes that seem particularly well-adapted to winters in wet, humid climates. It is slow to offset compared with many forms, which makes propagation more of a challenge. This clone needed a name and we could not think of anything better than to name it after the late Dr. J.C. Raulston.

Spectacular selection from the J.C. Raulston Arboretum in North Carolina of one of the hardiest Agaves. The makes a 2' high by 3' across dome of blue wedge-shaped leaves. Perfect drainage in a sandy soil - raised bed, top of rock wall. JC would have liked this being named for him.
