Agave americana var. marginata (Variegated Century Plant) - Large rosette-forming succulent to 5 to 6 feet tall by 6 to 8 feet wide with upright slightly wavy gray-green leaves that have strong cream to yellow margins. As with other Agave americana varieties this plant has yellow-green flowers that attract hummingbirds but plants do not bloom until they are several decades or so old (not a century!) and the plant dies after flowering. Plant in full sun. Irrigate occasionally to not at all. Cold hardy to 15 degrees F or less. This large plant can be dramatic in the landscape - give it plenty of room and situate it away from traffic. Great on a hillside. This plant is the more common variegated form of Agave americana with grayer-green, more upright leaves than the form we call Agave americana 'Yellow Ribbons'

I was very excited to receive my pup within a day following the purchase. I received a beautiful pup with (decent rooting)- the pup was a pretty good size. I actually had to clean out a pot that was larger than the small starter planters I purchased, lol 😆 I cleaned off the bottom (right above the roots around the bottom of plant) a little prior to planting in soil. The process went well; got it watered -,drained well and allowing my agave beauty to settle in & take root inside under some lighting. I'll wait a few weeks or so prior to planting the beauty in the front yard. Thanks, DesertNoir, I'll see you on your website for my next purchase (if I can wait that long, haha). AAA seller, highly recommend 👍👍👍

The plants arrived in perfect condition just a couple of days after I ordered them. Now after a few weeks they are still doing fine. The owner has answered many questions regarding the plants care. I really recommend this store!
