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.
