This splendid form of the vigorous North American native Agave lophantha came to us from plantsman Ted Stephens of Nurseries Caroliniana. Agave lophantha 'Splendida' forms the smallest rosettes of any of the wide-leaf forms of Agave lophantha we grow. 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.
