Agave Parrasana 'Meat Claw'.  
The Agave parrasana 'Meat Claw' is a very showy agave and makes a wonderful and attractive architectural centrepiece. Wide, fleshy upright leaves, are a striking frosty grey-blue in colour forming compact symmetrical rosettes. The rough textured leaves have scalloped edges with beautiful and unique imprinted patterns on their surfaces left by the teeth of the following leaves. The marginal teeth themselves are hook-like being bright red-orange when young, but mature to a silver-grey.
Be mindful of where to plant as each leaf also has a stout sharp terminal point. 

Easy to grow but slow, great for exotic gardens.
