I bought this from Tony Avent. Wonderful Agave! I tried leaving it out one winter, it is supposedly hardy in Z7. It did not succumb, but it was really ratty looking by spring time. I take it into the 'conservatory' before the first hard frost. It's a devil to move because of the spines. I snip off the points so I don't get speared, but it is still tricky to move around. When it was still small, I used it in a composition called Study in Blue that was part of my Container Presentation to the 2012 Annual Master Gardener Conference.
