The number of chromosomes seems not that important Agave has the 
same number of chromosomes as hosta .In this genus there are several 
tetraploids( A americana!) pentaploids and hexaploids. Moreover I do 
have a nicely fertile Sedum suaveolens with about 6oo chromosomes It 
is "twentyploid" and growing happily. 
I just did send a revised publication to a scientific journal with 
tetraploids triploids and ploidy chimeras in Hosta As soon as it is 
accepted definitively ( it was tentatively) you will hear more.
