Agave schidigera 'Shira ito no Ohi' (Queen of White Thread Century Plant)
(aka: A. schidigera, A. filifera 'Compacta Marginata')
Full Sun
Zone: Zone 8 and south, guessing
Winter Hardiness: 15-20° F
12" tall

This amazingly slow-growing century plant has been circulated in the collectors' market for several years and mine are finally big enough to offer!!

A showy slow-growing century plant with a solitary rosette to 1 foot tall by 18 inches wide rosette with dark green leaves with a sharp reddish terminal spine and margins highlighted with a strong creamy-white variegation and curly white hairs.
When plant matures it can produce red-purple buds and greenish flowers on a 10 foot spike.
Plant in full sun, except in hotter inland gardens where light shade or morning sun is best, in a well drained soil with occasional irrigation in late spring and summer.
This is a solitary (non-offsetting) plant.

All plants were propagated by tissue culture, from a reputable lab. This was done to assure that you have the genuine plant, not some larger variety.
This plant was grown in an organic manner. I make my own media, use organic fertilizer and refrain from chemicals.

All plants are grown with care, are fully rooted & shipped in their 6" containers.
What you see is what you get!!

I ship plants on Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday (via Priority Mail), so they don’t get stuck at the Post Office over the weekend. Orders received after 2 PM PST Tuesday will ship the following Monday.

Shipping prices are estimated for the furthest shipping locations.
Any overcharges will be refunded to whatever account you paid with. Thank you.

Buyers: Please check out my shop policies before purchase

Happy Gardening!!
