Agave Blue Balls
Despite the funny name, Agave titanota “Agave Blue Balls” is a real collectors item! We collected this beauty out on a very narrow ledge of sharp limestone 20m meters above a screed slope of sharp rock in Oaxaca Mexico. It was worth it though! This agave is simply stunning with its pale blue color it is a great accent plant to contrast with darker colored plants. Agave titanota is a medium sized agave to 2 feet tall and wide with gorgeous, thick, pale, ghostly white-colored leaves arranged in a solitary rosette. It is an open plant with few leaves, which are 1 to 2 feet long by 5 inches wide and narrow near the base and widest towards their tips with prominent teats and teeth. This agave prefers full sun in a well-drained soil and irrigate only occasionally. It is hardy to at least 25 F. These plants are grown in 1 gallon pots and shipped bareroot.
