Agave xylonacantha 'Frostbite'
Common Name: Saw Tooth Agave Family: Asparagaceae (The Asparagus Family)

This impressive variegated Agave has creamy white to light yellow margins and mid green centres. The large spines give this cultivar a decidedly serrated look. The Spanish common name is shark's tooth agave. 'Frostbite' 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.
