Dwarf Variegated Century Plant, Agave

Agave species (mini variegated)

Agavaceae

Dwarf Variegated Century Plant, Agave
Each leaf of this miniature Century Plant is broadly edged in a creamy white creating a nice contrast with the rich green at its heart creating a beautiful rosette of variegated foliage. This selection seems to be a true miniature and is great for smaller containers.

Like most Agaves the Variegated Dwarf Century Plant will forgive if you forget to water it as it prefers for its soil to become dry between waterings. Use a well-draining, sandy soil when repotting. Mature plants readily produce offsets and can develop into a groundcovering mass of rosettes.

We honestly are not sure on the species of this one but we suspect it is a form of Agave parryi.
