Agave americana medio-picta alba

Common Name: White Stripe Century Plant

Probably one of the most beautiful and dramatic of all the Agaves. Interestingly curved leaves are olive green on the outside margins with a brilliant, bold, white stripe down the center. It doesn’t get as large as its other ‘americana’ brothers, remaining about 3 1/2′ high and about as wide. Spectacular as a large potted specimen in earthen tone pots, or as a high impact architectural form in a southwest or Mediterranean landscape. Full sun to part shade. Drought tolerant, but likes occasional deep watering.
