Agave nizandensis 'Double Stripe' is a 2020 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction of the endangered Oaxacan (Southern Mexico) native, shade-loving, slope-residing century plant. We first selected a seedling of the unarmed, squid-like century plant that had a prominent gold center pattern, and then waited patiently for a streak to appear in a single leaf. Five years later, we were finally able to isolate the streak into variegated edges down both sides of the leaf. This was followed by another five years building up stock. Agave nizandensis 'Double Stripe' has been slow to propagate, but we are thrilled to finally release it in limited numbers. Because of the extremely brittle nature of the leaves, please be aware that it will most likely arrive with a few broken leaves, despite our best assured it will re-grow.
