Beschorneria sp. 'Queretaro'


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
Named for the central Mexican city from which it was collected this Beschorneria forms attractively lax rosettes of strappy evergreen foliage similar to a spineless version of the closely related Agave. Slightly narrower leaves than most in the genus and only growing to about 2' wide. The real showstopper are the 5' tall hot pink flower spikes that look like Barbie-ified Godzilla asparagus dangling greenish, pendulous flowers that add grandma's lampshade fringe into the mix.
