Agave lopantha 'Quadricolor'
Agave lopantha 'Quadricolor' (Quadricolor Century Plant) - a very distinctive and attractive small agave to about 1 foot in diameter with 6 to 8 inch long, dark green leaves edged with yellow and having a pale green midstripe. The yellow marginal stripes, highlighted by dark reddish teeth, flush red when grown in bright light to give the leaf four distinct colors. Plant in full sun to bright filtered light (best sheltered from full summer sun in hot climates) in a well-drained soil. Tolerates dry conditions but will grow much faster with regular summer irrigation - keep drier in winter. Exceptional color & form. Makes a nice container plant or grouped in succulent garden. Hardy to 10-15 degrees.
