Agave "Thorny Warrior" The hybrid agave seedling should reach to around 3 feet tall by as wide with foot long arching gray-green leaves that have large teeth along the margins connecting the large teeth and narrowing toward the tip with a long red-brown terminal spine. Some also have a fairly strong broad green midstripe. This is a hybrid between the Saw Leaf Agave, Agave xylonacantha and the Gypsum Century Plant, Agave pablocarrilloi (previously called A. gypsophila) that was created by Tony Krock. For information about the parent species, see our listing for Agave xylonacantha and Agave gypsophilaThis information is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of it in our nursery of crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we have visited. We will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Agave "Thorny Warrior".
