This lovely Japanese selection of an easy to grow species is small, only to about 6-8", with shiny green leaves edged cream and tan. Eventually forms clumps of several rosettes. Best if kept out of hottest afternoon sun in well-drained soil with occasional summer water where dry. A fine rock garden creature where temperatures seldom fall to 15 °F, mid USDA zone 8 and superb in containers where temperatures are too harsh.

This agave is a WOW plant...a stunning selection of the ubiquitous Mexican Agave lophantha. This 18" tall x 2' wide selection is composed of 1' long x 2.5" wide leaves, each with a chartreuse yellow center, edged in green and surrounded by a pale green margin, which is then surrounded by a dramatic white border...hence, the name 'Quadricolor'. Agave lophantha 'Quadricolor' makes a dazzling specimen either in a container or in the ground from Zone 8 south. It is a reasonably good offsetting species, so they'll be plenty to share...if you have a sharp knife, strong nerves, and a thick set of gloves. Agave flowers attract hummingbirds.

Info

This plant is extremely decorative. It remains relatively small and thus makes a great potted specimen. It's not as hardy as the species but is listed as being hardy to about 22 °F. It matures to about 1 foot in diameter with 6 to 8 inch long dark green leaves edged with yellow and having a pale green midstripe. The yellow marginal stripe is highlighted by dark reddish teeth when grown in bright light, giving the leaf four distinct colors.
