This agave is one of the prettiest and most sought after variegated succulents in existence. It is a living sculpture with very dramatic leaves, the juxtaposition of the solid creamy white bands down the center with the powder blue of margins in a neat rosette looks right to the eye.
The var. medio-picta 'Alba' is a medium to smaller growing form of Agave americana.
Flowers: The individual flowers are yellow-green and attract hummingbirds. Flower spikes are also variegated.
Blooming season: Summer, however in warmer climates the Century Plant doesn't bloom until it is a decade old and not a century! (up to 35 years or more in cool climates) and the plant dies after flowering.
Use: These striking plants are wonderful when used for accent, or simply to provide some all year round foliage color. They are often used in a pot as patio plants, and make an eye-catching statement. Along with other evergreen plants in pots, they can be moved around to change the scenery, or positioned to give more shelter. This is a large dramatic plant that enjoy plenty of room, preferably situated away from traffic. Good on a hillside.
