Agave salmiana var. ferox 'Green Goblet' - A selection of Agave salmiana var. ferox that grows to 4 feet tall by 5 feet wide with wide dark green leaves that are slightly bluish at their base. This selection was made by Yucca Do from near the Sierra Chiquita Mountains in Mexico. This plant was selected because it is a more compact and greener plant within a population of plants that were more open and blue-green. Yucca Do Nursery notes that this plant was not damaged at 15 F and Tony Avent at Plant Delights Nursery notes it is hardy to the single digits though care should be used not to allow it to remain too wet in winter.  This description is based on our research and observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We also try to incorporate comments received from others and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have 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 salmiana ferox 'Green Goblet'.
