With its origins in northeast Mexico, Agave americana is the most commonly cultivated species of agave throughout the world, being grown (and naturalising) in dry climates where the frosts are not too frequent or penetrating. It is extremely variable in most of its features - size, habit, colour and frost tolerance - with several subspecies being recognised. There are also a number of cultivars of which Agave Americana 'Variegata' is possibly the most widespread. Leaves are generally a pale grey-green with wide, pale butter-yellow margins but plants under this name are variable.

Arrived quickly which was unexpected as being Christmas time. The plant was better than I imagined it would be, in excellent condition and beautiful quality. It can definitely recommend the company and will order again.
