Agave 'Hacksaw' is our first named clonal selection from our Agave 'Stairway to Heaven' hybrid seed strain, created in 2010 from our cross involving Agave americana, lophantha, gentryi, and asperrima. For us, Agave 'Hacksaw' has formed a stunning 3' tall x 5' wide, slowly offsetting rosette of 3" wide dark blue-green leaves, each edged with black-burgundy hacksaw-like, tiny teeth. In good growing conditions, you should see the stunning 20' tall flower spike in 5 years, and enjoy the amazing array of pollinators as they visit for a snack of sweet nectar. Good drainage and dry soil in the winter are the keys to growing century plants in cold winter climates.
