Agave albopilosa 'Tufts' is a rare, dwarf century plant with stiff, dark green leavestipped with white hairs like little cotton balls!
Agave albopilosa is a mind-boggling, super rare, dwarf century plant whose long, stiff, narrow, dark green leaves are tipped with pure white hairs that look like little cotton balls! The species was discovered in the 1990s and not scientifically described and named until 2007! This crazy succulent grows on sheer rock walls in the mountains of Nuevo Leon, Mexico in association with Agave bracteosa and Agave victoria-reginae. 'Tufts' is a good selected form. Note that the white tufts of hairs begin forming when plants reach a certain size, usually around 3 years of age.
