Agave 'Jaws'

A large agave with blue-green leaves, sharp spines, and deeply serrated edges that produce beautiful ghosting along the leaves. Can grow to be 5-8 feet wide. One of the most cold-hardy agaves. Spines are red-tipped.

Growing conditions

Light: Full sun to partial shade (needs more shade away from the coast)

Hardiness: 5-10 degrees

Maintenance considerations

Water occasionally during hot, dry summers. You can leave this one alone, for the most part. 

Companion plants

Jaws looks phenomenal when planted with finely-textured, drought-tolerant ornamental grasses. We have it planted with aloes along the road. Any plant with a thinner leaf texture will bring out the beauty of 'Jaws'.
