Lg. Frostbite Hooked Agave (agave xylonacantha sp.)

Be sure to wear thick gloves when handling this monster or you’ll get nipped! It is a rare and exciting selection with incredible variegation and prominent, hooked spines lining the scalloped leaves. Rigid and thick lanceolate leaves are very long and narrow, measuring about 18” long by just 1” wide. The glaucous to dark green center is lined with a creamy yellow to crisp white margin that contrasts superbly with the dark orangish black marginal spines and sharp terminal spine. Leaf imprints can be found on both the front and back of the leaves. This plant forms a low, broadly spreading, symmetrical, solitary rosette. Simply incredible!
