This unique Agave has an unknown origin in the wild, because although the type is from Sinaloa, Mexico, it may have originated in Cuba. This species has no spines and smooth, gracefully arching light green leaves. The variegates have yellow streaking in the leaves, and in some plants the yellow streaking dominates the leaves in striking patterns. It is sensitive to frosts below around 27F and takes major damage in Tucson landscapes; we grow it as a porch pot plant. These plants are rooted offsets in one-gallon pots.
