A somewhat forbidding selection with a tight rosette of short blue leaves edged with sinister spines and a name -- 'Meat Claw' -- that runs contrary to the current propensity for cute food-related names. It's just a hunch but I think a man named this plant. At any rate, 'Meat Claw' is a dramatic agave perfect for a container or outdoor planting from zone 8 and up!
