A variegated form of the common century plant, with yellow margins along the alligator-toothed leaves. It makes a dramatic tropical statement in the landscape. Just place it a good distance from pedestrian areas -- remember, it's thorny and can grow to up to 8' wide.
The flowers attract hummingbirds, but they only appear after several years, at the end of the plant's life.
Variegated agaves can suffer tissue damage in extreme cold temperatures, especially in combination with moisture.
