This non-offsetting Agave xylonacantha 'Frostbite' is one of the most unique and beautiful agaves in our collection. 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 of Agave 'Frostbite' 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. We're on the northern borderline for growing the solid green species outdoors, but the variegation of 'Frostbite' reduces its hardiness, so best enjoy as a container plant in zone 8 and north. Eventually the fragrant agave flowers will attract hummingbirds to your patio.
