A lovely specimen of Agave americana 'Variegata' in a 8.5in diameter terracotta bowl. The leaves are blue-green in colour, edged in cream and have a 20in spread across the bowl. The height of the plant above soil level is approximately 12in. It can be grown outside all year round in milder, coastal areas where frost is less of a problem but will survive several degrees of frost if kept dry during the winter months. This agave can grow to around 3 - 4 feet in height and width if planted out
