(syn: A. cundinamarcensis 'Marginata') Agave cundinamarcensis is a rarely grown century plant, due in part to its native range, in the Columbian Province of Cundinamarca, being so distant from the ranges of the more well-known agave species. A wide cream-margined form of Agave cundinamarcensis has been shared by a few European collectors, but never properly named. So we've christened it Agave cundinamarcensis 'Condor', after the Columbian national bird, which also has a lovely white ring. The non-offsetting Agave 'Condor' grows quite large like its namesake, forming a 6' tall x 12' wide specimen, composed of smooth glossy green leaves edged with tiny hacksaw-like teeth and bordered with a wide two-tone edge of pale minty cream, outlined in cream. Agave 'Condor' is truly impressive when grown in large containers. This is one time opportunity to add this very rare specimen to your century plant collection.
