Agave "Yavapai County" - A rosette-forming succulent that should grow to about 2 feet tall by 3 feet wide with gray-green leaves. We really don't know much more about this plant that we grew from seed collected at around 4,500 feet in Yavapai County, Arizonia by Forrest (Erik) Anderson. This area has both Parry's Agave, Agave parryi var. couesii and the Golden Flowered Agave, Agave chrysantha, which is a close relative of Agave palmeri. The seed collected was off a plant thought to be a hybrid between these two and many plants with this parentage have been identified in this area. Both of these plants are among the hardiest of the Agave so this hybrid will likely prove as hardy. Plant in full sun and give little to no supplemental irrigation.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Agave 'Yavapai County'.
