This rarely offered Sonoran desert native has small rosettes of 16" long x 1/2" wide nearly cylindrical green leaves often highlighted with a white central marking.

When the clumps mature, expect narrow bamboo pole-like flowering spikes to 8'...stunning! Agaves do not like winter wet. Great drainage and protection from excess moisture when the temperatures are below 20 degrees F are essential.
