Agave angustifolia marginata,Variegated Caribbean Agave

Agave angustifoila marginata, Variegated Caribbean Agave from the West Indies
This is one of the best small Agaves which suckers and forms an easy care group over a number of years and one which never becomes difficult to manage . A local planting of it in a dry planter box in front of a real estate office always looks smart as the plants remain formal and neat. The white edged blue grey leaves are distinctive and the terminal spines are small and inconspicuous.
It could also be grown amongst softer flowering perennials. As an edging plant in a shrub border particularly in difficult dry sites it would prove a winner.
2017 update: I have stock available mainly in smaller sizes.
