This amazing selection of Agave striata makes a truly incredible sight...and a masochist's wet dream. Each clump will reach an amazing 6' in width, with 3' long, round pencil-like, chalky blue leaves that have a nearly white appearance with age. The Espadina Form from Monclova, Coahuila, Mexico, has proven very easy to grow and very tolerant of cold winters and moisture. This is a seriously anti-social plant, composed of King Kong-size knitting needle-like leaves, so don't put this one beside the walkway.
