Rancho Tissue Introduces the Rancho Collection

Introducing the Rancho Collection (click here to view images of the 12 plants in the first release): Rancho Tissue Technologies has introduced the Rancho Collection, an exclusive selection of varieties hand picked or bred specifically for the company.

“These varieties are carefully chosen for their unique and distinctive features,” says Owner and Founder Heather May. “Our breeder/curator Kelly Griffin worked with our specific goals in mind to create or choose the best varieties so growers and homeowners alike will be happy.”

The Collection includes varieties such as Agave ovatifolia ‘Vanzie’, distinguished by its leaf cupping, which is much more intense than in standard ovatifolia selections. Differences like this will help growers stocking the Rancho Collection differentiate from their competitors.

In addition to ‘Vanzie’, the Rancho Collection’s inaugural varieties include five more Agaves, ‘Blue Flame’, ‘Blue Glow’, ‘Cameron Blue’, ‘Dragon Toes’ and ‘Globe’; plus two Aloes, ‘Violet’ and ‘Delta Lights’; two Dyckias, ‘Brittle Star’ and ‘Burgundy Ice’; and two Echeverias, ‘Purple Afterglow’ and ‘White Cloud’.

All Rancho Collection varieties are produced by tissue culture for superior uniformity and consistency. Watch for more selections in the Collection coming soon.
