Agave parrasana ‘Meat Claw’ is ferocious selection of the ever popular ‘Cabbage Head Agave’ one of the most outstanding smaller Agave species worth growing outdoors here in the U.K.
The densely packed leaves are armed with raised hooked thorns along each the leaf edge with a long terminal spine at the tip which when young are a deep wine red. The leaves themselves are a bluish grey-green and are indented with the shadow of the leaf formed next to it as it developed in the growing point creating a wonderful textured bicolour effect. It is important to note that Agave parrasana is compact, rarely growing more than 35cm by 35cm, tolerant of frost and seems quite resistant to our damp winters.
