Agave lophantha quadricolor variegated
Four colors on the leaves. This is a unusual agave. The plant is a medium growing agave that grows about 1 foot height and up to 2 foot around. Fantastic in the ground or in pots. The yellow marginal stripes, highlighted by dark reddish teeth, flush red when grown in bright light to give the leaf four distinct colors (three shades of green and one shade yellow).
If you want an agave that grows larger (3 feet tall and about 4 feet across) look for hte tri-color agave listed.
Chiefly Mexican, agaves are also native to the southern and western United States and central and tropical South America. They are succulents (some uses to make liquor -Tequila) with a large rose shape of thick, fleshy leaves, each ending generally in a sharp point and with a spiny margin.
Agave species are popular as ornamental plants. These will produce a large spike of flowers (usually after several years of growing). Also, know as the century plant. Baby plants will grow from the main plant and we recommend waiting until the baby plans have good roots before removing them to plant separately.
