This small growing agave makes a great anti-social groundcover as it suckers freely to form a nice colony. The 2' long succulent grey-green 1/2" wide leaves are often highlighted by an attractive pale central stripe. With age, you will eventually witness the narrow beanstalk-like 10' tall flowering spike of yellow-purple flowers.
