  Ruth Bancroft Garden and Agave titanota

The garden tour and Agave Summit at the Ruth Bancroft Garden may have answered the question for many of us as to the parentage of a plant that has been circulating about as Agave (FO-076) or Agave 'Felipe Otero'. Brian Kemble, Assistant Director of the Ruth Bancroft Garden told the group that he located the site where Gentry first described the white-gray leafed Agave titanota such as pictured below. Brian also visited the area where it is believed that Felipe Otero collected seeds for the plant that we have been calling Agave 'FO-076'. At the latter location Brian noted both the typical form of A. titanota growing with the greener Agave 'FO-076' type plants and he concluded from this that Agave 'FO-076' is likely a variant of Agave titanota.
