Agave multifilifera 'Silly String' is a 2022 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction of a special seedling we acquired in 2010 from agave guru Greg Starr. The 18" tall x 2' wide, non-offsetting clump of very narrow dark green leaves is adorned with a central chartreuse stripe in addition to the random white markings and abundant prematurely white hair that's common with Agave multifilifera. We've tortured the heck out of our original plant to have any to share, so quantities are very limited.
