Also known as Palmer's Century Plant or
Palmer's Agave, this native of Mexico grows freely in many areas,
including the Southwest region of the United States. The rosette of
gray-green leaves blends harmoniously with the Southwestern
landscape. Each leaf has a thorny tip that can easily puncture
your skin, so be warned! The Agave palmeri typically lives for
10 - 30 years and blooms only once, at the end of its life.
