Agave x pseudoferox ‘Bluebell Giants’

More Info

Common name:  Bluebell Giants Hardy Century Plant


An exciting hybrid created by Tony Avent at Plant Delights Nursery in the US. Please check out Tony’s website for images of this beauty here. Below is information about this from their website. This really does have the potential to be a monster!

Agave ‘Bluebell Giants’ is a 2016 Plant Delights Nursery introduction of a seed strain of century plants that originated from our 2014 cross of two of our largest and hardiest century plants, Agave x protamericana and Agave x pseudoferox ‘Bellville’. If the size of the parents is any indication, we expect the offspring to reach at least 7′ tall x 12′ in width or larger. Each Agave ‘Bluebell Giants’ seedling is different, but the consistent traits we’ve seen so far are fast growth rate, nice blue foliage, and upturned leaf tips. Agave ‘Bluebell Giants’ contains genes from at least three agave species (Agave americana, A. asperrima, and A. gentryi) For further images see here Images on PDN site
