This South American plant was described as a new species in 2008 by Lode and Pino, but it is considered a synonym of Agave americana ssp. americana. According to its description, these high-elevation populations have some clearly visible differences: leaves show a trasversal pale-dark banding; the inflorescence is bent on a side; each branch of the inflorescence is curled. This form was recorded from different countries in South America, mostly Peru, Colombia and Ecuador, at altitudes ranging from sea level to almost 4000 m, being most common at 1500-3000 m.
We offer a bare-rooted plant of about 14-18 cm in diameter, grown in a 14 cm pot. Container size will just give you an idea of the size of the plant, because succulent plants are sent with bare roots, as they are very tolerant of bare-rooting. We ship worldwide.
