Agave angustifolia ‘Marginata’ or Variegated Caribbean Agave is a small beautiful Agave with stiff short sword shape leaves with cream colored margins. Leaves will reach up to 20 inches (50 cm) long by 3-4 inches (8-10 cm) wide with marginal teeth and a subulate-conical terminal spine. They are great Agave for containers because of their small size. Plants freely sucker so there is never a loss for new plants.

Blooming: Our plant has never produced flowers. The flowers are greenish-yellow and approximately 2 inches (5 cm) long and flower stalks will reach up to 9 feet (2.5 m) in height.
