I am not a professional nor an expert in Agave taxonomy. Any help with ID and spelling are always welcome. Photos are for reference only. To up-date my list I've been using many books, journals, catalogs and other web-sites. It's been helpful, but I have more work to do. I only ship to the main 48 States. I do ship in the winter months. I can add 72+ hour heat packs for $3.00 each.  No international shipping. Please read the front page for ordering information.

  Agave stricta 'Nana' - (Dwarf Hedgehog Agave) - (A small agave that grows slowly to form symmetrical rosettes 6 to 10 inches tall and wide of narrow pale green spine-tipped leaves with tiny teeth along the margins that are more rough than sharp to the touch. With time new offsets form at the base from short rhizomes to create attractive tightly packed colonies. Occasionally a rosette will flower with a tall, sometimes crooked stalk, rising well above the foliage in late summer. The rosette of the flowering plant dies off but is quickly replaced by surrounding ones. An attractive and dramatic looking plant that is great as a container subject or planted in a rock garden or along a slope. There is certain amount of disagreement in agave circles about the valid name for this plant. Some consider it a variety or cultivar of Agave stricta while others suggest it a synonym for Agave petrophila, but side by side these two differ considerably with A. stricta 'Nana' having a narrower and much lighter green colored leaves.
