Agave funkiana 'Olympic Gold' is a stunning yellow-centered selection of the Northern Mexican (Hidalgo, Tamaulipas, Chiapas, Nuevo Leon, Queretaro, and San Luis Potosi) native Agave funkiana that we received in 2011 from California agave collector, Tony Krock. Our streaked plant eventually stabilized, and now 12 years later, we have a few to share. Each 1' tall x 20" wide rosette of narrow, well-spined leaves each have a dramatically wide central band of gold. Agave 'Olympic Gold' makes a superb container plant, and we are pleased to finally have a few to share.
