Wasn't it Little Red who said, "My what big teeth you have..."?  Agave, in my opinion, are the big bad wolf of the plant world.  That's a good thing.  Why do we always have to play it safe when it comes to plants and design?  I say teeth to the wind and put an element of danger in the mix.  Live a little.  Agaves are such cool architectural plants.  They're structure is so striking and for the ones that have them...those teeth!  Adding agaves to your world will definitely give you a notorious reputation. You like to live and design on the edge.  Now mind you some of these teeth do bite so remember to respect your agaves and they'll respect you back.  I mean come on...look at the electric neon created by the teeth of Agave 'Blue Glow' in the afternoon sun, the sinister sneer of Agave difformis, the diabolical dental drama of Agave bovicornuta, and the surprisingly sleek purple sophisticated tips and teeth of Agave 'Sharkskin'. Amazing!
