Not seen too many of these as single plants... this form seems to sucker aggressively. Also seem to look nicer under a bit of shade cloth instead of in full, hot, blazing sun. Variegation is yellow striping along the leaves and not readily noticable unless you look more closely.

Neutral htop On Feb 8, 2005, htop from San Antonio, TX (Zone 8b) wrote:

I have not grown this plant. It is a very ornamental agave whose dark green leaves are edged with white (cream). Be sure to give it good drainage and keep over 43F (6C). It rarely has suckers. It hybridizes with Agave lechuguilla and Agave asperrima.
