Confederate Rose (A. potatorum, A. pygmaea, or a potatorum/pygmaea hybrid) is not A. parrasana. A. parrasana is a larger, more attractive plant, sort of a jumbo A. parryi truncata, with very smooth leaves, reaching about 30" in diameter.

I was curious about the "Confederate Rose" agave labeled parrasana because it seems very different from the species--many experts seem to think it's mislabeled--a hybrid of unknown species, but defintely not a parrasana.

My agave parrasana was planted about 9 months ago, so it should have had time to acclimate. It gets the noon and afternoon sun.....and it is now suffering from sunburn and seems to be drying out. I live in the Phoenix area and it has been hot. I love the plant and want to save it. I also like it in this location; do I have to move it? More water? Any suggestions?

What a beauty of a miniature Agave. It grows as an excellent potted plant, offsets abundantly, will form mounds in the pot or landscape. It is only hardy to 25F. Love the blue green foliage, easy to see why it is called a Confederate Rose, tight foliage resembles a rose. Each mature plant is only about 4 inches across. Caution as the spiny tips are very sharp.
This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
Grenoble, Jones, Alabama Fountain Hills, Arizona Phoenix, Arizona Queen Creek, Arizona Bonsall, California Reseda, California San Leandro, California Vista, California Haverhill, Florida Kendall, Florida Tallahassee, Florida Fort Worth, Texas Shepherd, Texas Sunset Valley, Texas Edgewood, Washington
