This large, fast-growing agave features wide blue-green foliage that develops into a spectacularly large clump to 4' wide. This durable agave seems more tolerant of adverse conditions than many that we have grown, perhaps partially due to its quick growth rate. The spiny teeth along the edges of the leaves are reminiscent of the mouth of a shark...for those that have seen one close up! Our seeds for this offering come from the famed Peckerwood Gardens of Yucca Do founder John Fairey.
