This dense Agave has wide but short leaves with a blue-gray color. Large terminal spines are on the end of each leaf, and smaller spines along leaf edge as it gets older. Blooms at maturity, which can take roughly 10 years. Rosettes which host the bloom spike will die off afterwards, however new rosettes will continue to shoot off the host plant and continue the life cycle. For aesthetics, most people remove extra pups.
