Agave 'Blue Ribbon' is a beautiful selection of Agave macroacantha, which hails from the Mexican state of Puebla, where it makes tight, suckering 1' tall x 18" wide rosettes of blue finger-like leaves, each tipped with a wicked terminal black spine. This wonderful form adds another layer of beauty with a creamy edge around each leaf...simply splendid! In areas where it isn't winter hardy, Agave macroacantha 'Blue Ribbon' makes a superb container specimen.
