Agave funkiana 'Hakuro Shiro Fukurin' is a virtually unobtainable century plant that we purchased from Thailand in 2006 as an Agave lophantha, which it is obviously not. The 18" long x 1" wide, upright, shallowly grooved leaves are dark green and edged with a dramatic wide white border. The few scattered teeth along the leaf edges turn papery and fall away as the leaves age. Agave 'Hakuro Shiro Fukurin' (translated as "frosty white margin") makes a stunning 18" tall x 3' wide clump. These are slow growing, tightly offsetting plants in containers.
