Agave x protifolia 'Emerald Giants' is our 2020 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction of an amazing hybrid, created by our former adjunct researcher and agave specialist Mike Papay, who crossed Agave ovatifolia x Agave x protamericana 'Saltillo'. The largest of our seedlings, which has been in the ground since August 2018 is already 3' tall x 5' wide, so we expect these could easily reach 5' tall x 10' wide or larger. The leaves are very wide, glossy green, with large marginal teeth and upturned leaf tips. We've planted several in the gardens for potential future clonal selections (5-10 years), but our supply of these amazing seedlings is very limited.
