Agave 'Green Bull' A nice mid green agave that grows to around 3 feet tall by as wide with foot long upright leaves that have broad corneous (horny) tan aging to gray margins connecting the large teeth and base of the terminal spine making it pretty decorative and reminiscent of nice greener form of Agave oteroi (A. titanota 'FO-76). This plant in fact has been compared to a cross between Agave oteroi and Agave horrida. Plant in full sun in a well-drained soil where it will likely required very little irrigation. Cold hardiness is not yet known for this plant so best for now in milder coastal gardens. This agave has yet to be formally described but was discovered on a mountainside in May of 2019 by Jeremy Spath, Julia Etter, Kelly Griffin and Tony Krock in central Oaxaca as they traveled to the type locality of Agave gypsicola near the town of San Juan Teita. These explorers realized it was a plant in the Marginatae group, but otherwise could not identify it. The name "Green Bull" was coined by Tony Krock for this plants nice green color and because there had been an intimidating bull along their route from the road to get to the plants. Our thanks to Tony and Holly Krock for sharing this nice plant and the picture on this page with us.  This information is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of it in our nursery of crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we have visited. We will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Agave 'Green Bull'.
