  • Special notes:  
    This light colored agave is medium sized – about 2 feet tall with thick light green gray colored leaves typically arranged in a solitary rosette. Leaves are few and one to two feet long by five inches wide, narrower at the base and widening toward the tip. Leaf edges develop a very interesting bony colored leaf margin with fascinating flattened thorns that are actually very dull. It is very slow growing. Agave titanota is monocarpic with yellow flowers.
