Description

This is Agave is one of our new favorite plants, great color and great shape all into one, plus low maintenance, what more could you ask for? Agave desmettiana 'Variegata' is a rosette forming succulent that has bright green leaves with yellow variegation. The edges of the leaves are spineless but this Agave does produce a sharp brown spine at the tip, which can easily be clipped off in high traffic areas. Dwarf Variegated Agave can reach 2-3' has a spread of 3-4' and will eventually form a clump with age. Great for Xeriscapes and for containers, providing the perfect accent with it's urn shape. As of 2008 we know it blooms as well, it started in August of 2008 and as of Febuary 2009 it is still going! We will see if we can get some seed from these.
