Agave lophantha 'Quadricolor' is a WOW plant...a stunning selection of the ubiquitous Mexican Agave lophantha. This 18" tall x 2' wide selection is composed of 1' long x 2.5" wide leaves, each with a chartreuse-yellow center, edged in green and surrounded by a pale green margin, which is then surrounded by a dramatic creamy white border...hence, the name 'Quadricolor'. Agave lophantha 'Quadricolor' makes a dazzling specimen either in a container or in the ground from Zone 8 south. It is a reasonably good offsetting species, so there will be plenty to share...if you have a sharp knife, strong nerves, and a thick set of gloves. Agave flowers attract hummingbirds.
