Agave desmettiana ‘Variegata’ is a rosette forming succulent that has bright green leaves with yellow variegation. The edges of the leaves are spineless but this Agave does produce a sharp brown spine at the tip which can easily be clipped off in high traffic areas. Dwarf Variegated Agave can reach 2-3′ has a spread of 3-4′ and will eventually form a clump with age. Great for Xeriscapes and for containers providing the perfect accent with it’s urn shape.  Showy yellow variegation along the edge of each leaf.
