This seed-grown offering of the wide-ranging Agave lechuguilla comes from 4,900' elevation in El Paso, Texas. The 1' long, spiny-edged, narrow green leaves are held upright, forming open rosettes, which eventually spread by underground rhizomes to form a nice patch. In this population, most of the plants are adorned with prominent central banding, which ranges from cream to gold.
