Agave americana marginata

Agave americana marginata, also known as Variegated Century Plant or Variegated American Agave, is a striking cultivar of the Agave americana species. It exhibits alluring variegation, adding an extra layer of visual interest to an already impressive succulent.

The Marginata variety of Agave americana features large, fleshy leaves that grow in a rosette formation. These leaves can reach lengths of up to 6 feet (1.8 meters) and are characterized by their striking variegation. The variegation appears as creamy or yellowish margins along the edges of the leaves, contrasting beautifully with the bluish-green or grayish-green color of the leaf centers.

Agave americana Marginata follows a similar growth habit and lifecycle. It takes several years to mature and will eventually send up a tall flower spike, reaching heights of 20 to 40 feet (6 to 12 meters), adorned with yellow flowers. After flowering, the plant will typically die, but it produces offsets or "pups" that can be propagated to continue the cycle.
