Agave vilmoriniana 'Stained Glass' is one of the most stunning variegated century plants we've ever seen. This variegated form of octopus century plant was discovered by the late succulent expert Charles Glass and shared with California nurseryman Randy Baldwin, who named and introduced it in 2008. Agave 'Stained Glass' forms a 4' tall x 7' wide solitary specimen with long, recurved, deeply-channeled, spineless leaves. Each leaf is glaucous blue green, edged in creamy yellow. Agave vilmoriniana usually flowers in 10 years and, while the plant dies afterwards, it first produces hundreds of small plants on the old flower stalk. Where it's not winter hardy outdoors, it makes a stunning container plant for the patio or balcony.
