Agave x romanii started its life thanks to Belgian agave collector Jos de Vleeshouder, who created this hybrid of Agave filifera and Agave mitis var. albidior. Agave x romanii 'Shadow Dancer' is a dwarf variegated sport from the aforementioned cross. For us, Agave 'Shadow Dancer' makes a small 8" tall x 1' wide clump of deeply-channeled, parchment-colored leaves, bordered by pale green edges and aging to entirely parchment...truly unique. Agave 'Shadow Dancer' is slow to offset, and we have yet to try this outdoors, but it performs wonderfully in a small container.
