Agave isthmensis 'Ohi Raijin Fukurin Nishiki' is a white-edged form of the dwarf butterfly agave which can only be found along the Mexican coast of Oaxaca near the Isthmus of Tehuantepec (hence the species name). For us, the individual rosettes never exceed 6" tall x 6" wide. The offsets come from the trunk and not from underground runners like many other agave species. The white leaf edge is strongest on the more mature leaves. Because of its small size, Agave isthmensis 'Ohi Raijin Fukurin Nishiki' is perfect as a container plant. The name translates roughly to central variegated storm queen.
