Height: 12" tall
Agave 'Becky' is a selection of the Mexican Agave potatorum that forms an architectural small, slow-growing clump to 1' tall x 18" wide. The short leaves are edged in glaucous green with a lovely creamy chartreuse center that brightens in the sun. The terminal spines emerge orange, then change to cinnamon, before aging brown...a truly delightful container specimen where it isn't winter hardy. This is a much different plant than the center-variegated forms of Agave 'Kissho Kan'.
