This non-offsetting gem is one of the rarest and most beautiful agaves in our collection. Finally, we have enough of this exotic variegated beauty to share. This 30" wide selection of Agave xylonacantha (xylonacantha means "wood teeth/spines") is composed of 18" long x 1" wide leaves which form a symmetrical clump. Each leaf has a medium green central stripe, bordered by a wide creamy yellow edge that ages to white. The unusual snaggle-tooth spine pattern on the leaf edge is truly fascinating. If you live in a state with gun bans, keep a leaf from this baby by the bed for protection. We're on the northern borderline for growing this species outdoors, so from here north, enjoy yours as a container plant. Eventually the fragrant agave flowers will attract hummingbirds to your patio.
