Agave oteroi 'Filigree Devil' An very unique and attractive small mound forming agave with 3 inch wide tightly clustered rosettes of short gray-green leaves that rise up on short branching stems to form a dense clump. This plant is a cresting sport found within our crops of Agave oteroi 'Filigree', itself a unique small form the Sierra Mixteca Agave that we introduced in 2010. 'Filigree' was a single clone selected from seed grown crops of Agave oteroi (then known as A. sp. FO-076) for its tight growth and long eyelash like spines on the margin and over the years we began to notice that within the crops we were seeing a form that was more tightly clustered with smaller rosettes and it was this plant that we selected out and named 'Filigree Devil'. We thank Holly Krock for suggesting the name for this plant.  The information on this page is based on our research that has been conducted on this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in the nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we 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 oteroi 'Filigree Devil'.
