This Oaxacan endemic was initially described by Howard Scott Gentry from a single population in a limestone canyon at Rancho Tambor, at about 3200'- 4000'. Gentry's guide called the plants 'rabo de león ceniza' or tail of an ash lion. Gentry named the plant for what he described as an alabaster white color, hence the latin - 'titanota'. He also speculated that there were likely more populations to be found in the mountains, and in recent years other populations of light blue Agave titanota have been found, often oc- curring with green leaved forms. Agave titanota gets 2-3' across and 2' high and is hardy to 25-30 degrees. Plants in picture are seed grown, in a 5″ pot, & will be shipped bare root.
