Agave gentryi 'Jaws'


Rich green leaves with silver teeth!

This stunning Yucca Do Nursery selection is a highly sought-after agave selection. 'Jaws' can grow to four feet tall by eight feet wide in warmer climates but will remain much smaller in containers. The glossy dark green rosette is composed of long leaves with exceptionally largely toothed edges with short red teeth, menacingly resembling a shark’s mouth. Hardy on the West Coast in good drainage and out of the rain. Bring inside in winter in colder climates.
