Agave x amourifolia 'Twisted Tongue' is a 2018 Plant Delights Nursery release that takes agave gene mixing to a new level. This cross, which we made in 2016, includes Agave americana, Agave asperrima, Agave gentryi, Agave lophantha, and Agave ovatifolia. Our offering is a seed strain that promises to be truly amazing. Although we have no idea yet of mature size, our best estimates are that the rosettes should reach 3' tall x 5' wide. The architecturally arched leaves range in color from green to bluish green, most with a muted central yellow stripe. The steak knife-like black/red teeth along the leaf edges are truly amazing. We think Agave x amourifolia 'Twisted Tongue' will mature as one of the most unique century plants in your garden. Remember that each seed-grown plant is slightly different.
