It was really only a matter of time. I have vowed to purchase agave bracteosa this summer, but had no plans to purchase anything like this. I was checking out a new plant centre the other day when something caught my eye. I found this agave hanging out in the back corner unlabelled and without a price tag. When I inquired, the owner wanted to sell it and offered me a deal I could never pass up... $18. So with that I purchased this Agave bovicornuta....
Looks like sharks teeth. I love it!
This thing just screams attitude! Kind of venus fly trap meets tiger shark
But the story goes on ... I was also told they would bring in a whole line of agaves!!!! this could be dangerous!
