Agave x pseudoferox 'Bellville'

Family agavaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z7b-10)
Size 48"
Light sun
From seed germinate at room temperature with exposure to light
detailed seed-starting info below

Since Bellville is within biking distance of our garden, I figured an agave cultivar named for the place would likely do well around here – so I got some seeds from the NARGS exchange to give it a try, hoping they will come true. From what I've read, 'Bellville' has medium-green sharply serrated leaves decorated in dinosaur-like bumps and ridges. The growth style is fairly upright on young specimens, but mature ones can reach 8 ft across.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
