Cow's Horn Agave

This bold, stunning agave has wide, dark green, lance-shaped leaves with distinctive red-brown marginal teeth and a terminal spine. This solitary agave (ie: no offsets produced) is native to Sonora, Sinaloa and Chihuahua Mexico. This species performs best in filtered light, and should be protected from direct afternoon sun. Place it under large specimen trees or in patio containers. The branched flower stalk is adorned with yellowish-green flowers. After flowering this plant will need to be replaced.
