This splendid form of the vigorous North American native Agave lophantha came to us from plantsman Ted Stephens of Nurseries Caroliniana. Each 11" tall x 18" wide variegated rosette is composed of fat, 7" long x 2" wide, succulent leaves. The dark green, heavily-armed leaves are highlighted by a wide central yellow stripe that is even wider on the leaf back. Agave lophantha is a suckering century plant species with offsets held close to the parent rosette. When your Agave 'Splendida' is old enough, it will be topped with a 12' tall, 1" diameter flower spike holding manfreda-like, spidery, fragrant flowers...hummingbirds not included.
