Agave 'Blue Bola Select' is a mystery agave thought to be a hybrid of Agave celsii. It's rarely for sale but has attractive pastel colors, celsii-like blunt marginal teeth, and a spherical rosette of lanceloate leaves.
#agaveprotoamericana or #agaveamericana or possibly another species on Queen Anne in Seattle.

I am sure that the south exposure, minimum shade and a well draining soil is what keep this specimen alive and well. Little babies will be taking over their mothers place after she blooms.

View from top: the spiny-edged, blue-green leaves of a young variegated Agave americana. Plant in full sun and rarely water, as it is extremely heat tolerant. After a decade or so, the evergreen will bloom a flower stalk that can reach 20 ft in height.
Agave has been a Martin Shapes core material used in surfboards since the late 60’s. Many fine memories hunting for big Century Plant stalks in people’s back yards. “Excuse me mam.. that big stick back there growing out of the octopus plant is dangerous. We’d be happy to remove it for you” 😂 1 3/4” Agave americana down the center with @usblanks 1/8” dark wood and classic density polyurethane 👌
