Agave parviflora 'Pinpoint'
Pinpoint Small-Flowered Century Plant
Item #: 9821
Zones: 9a to 11
Height: 6" tall
Origin: Mexico, United States
Agave 'Pinpoint' is a very special white-centered leaf form of the dwarf century plant, native only to Arizona and the Mexican state of Durango. Agave parviflora 'Pinpoint' forms a 6" tall x 1' wide, mostly solitary clump of pencil-sized, terminal-spined leaves, each with a wide central white band. When mature, the rosette is topped with a 5' tall spike of very small bright golden yellow flowers. Agave parviflora 'Pinpoint' is highly prized as a container plant where it isn't winter hardy or where space is a consideration. It's taken us twelve years from acquiring our original specimen to propagate enough to share.
Flower Color: Yellow/Gold
