‘Kissho Kan’ stays small eventually growing only about a foot high.  Its smaller size makes it ideal for growing in patio pots and troughs with other succulents. The plant forms a remarkably symmetrical round rosette of soft blue-grey to blue-green leaves with clean ivory toothed margins.  Spines line the margins of each leaf.  The spines emerge yellow transition to light brown and then finally age to cinnamon brown.  The thick and rigid leaves are tough as nails almost plastic-like to the touch so you can be sure that deer and other pests won’t touch this plant.

Agaves typically flower only once every 15-25 years and the main crown dies after blooming.
