Agave americana marginata 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 centre with the powder blue of margins in a neat rosette looks right to the eye.

Description:  Solitary or slowly clumping succulent rosette  that will grow to a height of 90-120 (150). The arching leaves are characteristically  variegated and have a broad creamy white band down the centre of each leaf, with grey-blue sharp-spined edges.

Use: These striking plants are wonderful when used for accent or simply to provide some all year round foliage color and often used in a pot as a patio plant, they make an eye-catching statement and along with other evergreen plants in pots, can be moved around to change the scenery or position to give more shelter.

Cultivation: This is a very popular cultivar but it is relatively slow to grow and propagate, it tend to do less well than the standard blue-grey species plant, hence the price. They do well in full sun or a lightly shaded area.

In winter watering this plant can be done once every 1-2 months, there is no need to mist the leaves. Agave Americana is theoretically hardy to -9° C ,  particularly when dry but this cultivar is more tender and it is best to avoid severe freezing temperatures.

Propagation: Exclusively by suckers  Remove the basal suckers (if available) in spring or summer and let the cuttings dry for a few days before inserting in compost.
