Agave 'Sharkskin'

27th August 2009

A recently named cultivar from the USA which has been distributed rapidly, hopefully because it is a good and vigorous plant, but also because it has been tissue cultured. There has also been a suggestion that not all plants available have been the real thing, so I am waiting to see how this one develops.
The plant is a hybrid between A.asperrima ssp. scabra and the form of A.victoria-reginae that was once called A.fernandi-regis.
