Agave 'Brian's Guadacolorata' - An attractive hybrid between the Maguey Chato Agave guadalajarana and Mescal Ceniza Agave colorata that was created at the Ruth Bancroft Gardens. Plant in full sun. Drought tolerant. Cold tolerance not known but likely hardy to the low 20s F. We received the seed for these plants from Brian Kemble in 2008 from seed that was ripe in 2006 on a Agave guadalajarana that he had pollinated with pollen from Agave colorata on August 2, 2005. Though we have not seen this plant grow to its full size,we think it attractively-shaped with compact rosettes that have more leaves than Agave colorata but are more vertically held than Agave guadalajarana.  The information on this page is based on our research that has been conducted in our nursery library and from online sources as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in the nursery, in the nursery's garden, and in other gardens where it has been observed. We also incorporate comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that might aid others in growing  Agave 'Brian's Guadacolorata'.
