Agave Salmiana

Agave salmiana 'Ferox'

Ferox is one of the largest Agaves available at Mortellaros, reaching up to 6 feet tall and 12 feet wide. It will also require the most caution when trimming unsightly leaves or pups out as each leaf can have a terminal spine up to 8cm, along with pattern of sharp spines along leaf margins.


 Bright yellow blooms appear on mature specimens, which can take up to 12 years. Most susceptible to frost of the Agaves we carry.
