Lovin’ La Bufa

We’ve grown a number of distinctive forms of the Zone 7 hardy century plant, Agave lophantha, through the years, but one of our favorites is the Yucca Do introduction, Agave lophantha ‘La Bufa Baby’, currently on sale. This was originally discovered in the Sierra Chiquita Mountains of Tamaulipas, Mexico. It’s the only selection we’ve seen with a glaucous blue overlay on the leaves. Here’s a photo from the JLBG gardens this week.

  1. My husband is from Tamaulipas! How well do they grow here in NC? I’d love to get some if they’re hardy enough.
