Agave gentryi 'Jeffrey' (Jeff's Gray Agave) - A medium sized Agave that forms a cluster of rosettes to 3 feet tall by 4 feet wide with thick and wide gray leaves armed with large teeth along the leaf margin and a long terminal spine. The leaves have strong bud imprints and fold upright on both margins. Plant in full sun to light shades and water infrequently to regularly occasionally. Though there is still speculation on the origin of this plant it should prove to be at least nearly as hardy as the typical green species, which is known to tolerate temperatures down to 5 F. For more information on the species see our listing for Agave gentryi This attractive plant came from the Santa Barbara garden of Cycad specialist Jeff Chemnick and is thought to have come to him from the Ruth Bancroft Garden.  The information presented on this page is based on research we have conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations of it growing in our nursery crops, as well as in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we visit. We will incorporate comments that we receive from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they include cultural information that would aid others in growing Agave gentryi 'Jeffrey'.
