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 research conducted about this plant in the San Marcos Growers library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in our nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we may have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Agave 'Brian's Guadacolorata'.
