Agave xylonacantha 'Frostbite'


Menacing serrations and variegated foliage make Agave xylonacantha 'Frostbite' a memorable and extremely desirable succulent

This impressive variegated Agave xylonacantha has creamy white to light yellow margins and mid green centres. The large spines give 'Frostbite' a decidedly serrated look. The Spanish common name is shark's tooth agave. This is a smaller Agave that is potentially hardy on the west coast in good drainage and out of the rain. Or bring it inside where it will make an easy houseplant during the winter months.
