JZ’s Plant Spotlight: Tuxedo Agave

Agave americana ‘Mediopicta Alba’, which is gray-and-cream striped, and grows to about half the size of the others (to four or five feet tall and as wide), is hardy to 15 degrees Fahrenheit. This elegant, midsized agave is perfect for smaller gardens and also does well in pots. Because of its formal silhouette and coloration-and since its botanical name is unwieldy-I have given it the common name “tuxedo agave.” Learn more the San Diego Floral Association.
