This is one of our collecting trips that should be forgotten! On our third day out in Sierra Chiquita, Tamaulipas, Mexico we were driving on a gravel road when a flatbed truck with about eight men in the back came skidding up blocking our path. We thought we had a simple traffic misunderstanding until they all dismounted and surrounded our car with baseball bats and an old hunting rifle! The long and short of it was that we were relieved of our valuables and left with the clothes we were wearing and the one plant we had already managed to collect: Agave ferox is one of our favorite Agaves for its outstanding presence and form. There is simply no other Agave with its scale and classic Art Deco lines. It will reach 10’ across with the most impressive, broad structural leaves and is hardy down to 15 degrees. It is a must have for any agave enthusiast.
