Agave Shaka Zulu is a beautiful specimen plant. Named after the most famous Zulu clan chief, Shaka, who reigned the Zulu tribes in the early 1900s, with a fierce reputation for military strategy and warfare.

The dense geometric blue-green rosette of fleshy leaves are edged in red and finish in a fine point reminiscent of Zulu spears.
