Agave desmetiana 'Variegata' (Variegated Smooth Agave) - This is a medium sized upright agave that forms an upright urn-shaped rosette with 3 foot long by 4 inch wide leaves terminating in sharp reddish-brown spines. The leaves are bright green with yellow variegation along the margins. Spines are minute or nonexistent along the margins. It is quick growing and often produces many offsets. Plant in full sun. Drought tolerant. Hardy to around 25° F and a little lower for short durations - we have heard from a grower in Austin, Texas who noted that they had leaf damage after 2 nights with temperatures down to 25° F for several hours. This plant is called Agave 'Golden Moments' in Australia.
