(aka: Agave celsii 'Multicolor') I first saw this gem at Holland's amazing Succulenta Nursery and later at specialty nurseries in Thailand, where it made an architectural 18" tall x 18" wide clump. Agave celsii is a cloud forest species native to north central Mexico, although it seems quite happy growing here in full sun. The compact rosettes of glaucous upturned leaves are edged with a dramatic cream border...a superb container plant where it isn't quite winter hardy. Due to the specimen type Agave celsii being improperly documented, the name was switched to the properly documented, Agave mitis.
