Limited. Please Inquire before ordering. Wonderful and rare variegated and somewhat monstrose Agave. This was originally introduced and sold at his nursery in California by Ed Hummel in the 1960s. It has always been considered a rare and unusual plant as the heavily armed leaves are far more truncate and wavy than most of the cultivars of this basic species. This is a meristemmed version sometimes offered under the clonal name of A. Cornelius. We indirectly introduced this through our mail order catalogue nearly thirty years ago from stock plants which originally came to us from Hummel's Nursery as Agave americana 'Cornelius Baja Monstrosa.' .
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
