(aka: Agave polyacantha v. xalapensis shadow marginated) We are thrilled to finally have enough to share of Agave obscura 'Red Skyline', found as a seedling by agave collector Stef van Dort and a friend. Agave obscura 'Red Skyline' forms a 15" tall x 2' wide rosette of very dark, forest green leaves, absent any spines other than the leaf tip. The leaf margins are bordered with a wide contrasting stripe of light green, which is then edged with a narrow dark red purple stripe...truly elegant!
