I'll never forget the first time I saw this amazing sport of Agave ovatifolia, created by our friend, Hans Hansen. Hans took the stunning, solitary blue leaved century plant and added a wide border of gold and a central pattern of green flecked with irregular streaks of gold...a color pattern we've never seen in century plants. The growth rate of Agave 'Killer' is only slightly slower than the solid blue Agave ovatifolia form, so we anticipate a mature clump will reach at least 2' tall x 4' wide.
