Description: Discovered by Wade Roitsch in 1998 in La Encantada, southwestern Nuevo Leon, Mexico at about 9000 ft. elevation. It was originally thought to be a cultivar of A. montana but has been determined to be a different species. It is cold hardy to below 10 F but will suffer severe damage in a wet freeze below 15 F. It is not a prolific pupper and only grows to 4 ft. height by 3 ft. wide. It prefers full sun and meager supplemental water.
