This medium-sized agave is from the
Mexican state of Oaxaca where it is found
on limestone soils. The rigid, upright 5 inch
wide leaves are a medium green with a
whitish cast to the surface. ‘Snaggle Tooth’
is a form with a wide creamy-white
variegation on the leaf edges. This agave
produces offsets which can be left to form a
cluster, or removed to encourage a solitary
plant. Offsets are more pronounced in
containers versus planted in the ground.
Typical size is about 30 inches tall and
wide. Plants may be placed in full sun in
cooler climates, but performs best in light
shade in the low deserts.
