Agave isthmensis 'Moon Disc' is a sport we discovered on Agave isthmensis 'Ohi Raijin Shiro Fu' with the same half dollar-sized leaves, but with a slightly whiter center than its parent. Agave 'Moon Disc' makes a compact 6" tall x 6" wide rosette that is composed of thick leaves, each sporting a thumb-sized white central pattern surrounded by a glaucous border. The offsets come from the trunk and not from underground runners like many other agave species. Because of its small size, Agave isthmensis is perfect as a container plant.
