Agave americana variegata
This perennial succulent has large strappy leaves up to 1m long and 20cm wide so when fully grown the plant can be up to 2m in height and spread. Each leaf has a green centre with a golden yellow edge running down the full length. It has large spines along the edge of the leaves as well as each tip. Agaves love the sun so a light sunny situation is best with a free draining soil. Protect from severe frosts and keep ash dry in the winter. This plant is a great 'statement' plant so looks spectacular in a large pot or urn in a prominant position in any garden.
