Agave americana ‘Mediopicta Alba’
Agave americana ‘Mediopicta Alba’ is one of the prettiest and most sought after variegated succulents in existence. It is a living sculpture with very dramatic leaves, the juxtaposition of the solid creamy white bands down the centre with the powder blue of margins in a neat rosette looks right to the eye.

The white-striped century plant is a medium size agave cultivar that grows 3-4 ft. high and as wide. It has highly attractive white and gray markings on its arching leaves. Flowers develop on mature plants in early to late summer and can take 1-2 months to bloom, plants die after flowering.
Both the size and distinctive color markings of the White-striped century plant make it suited as a focal plant in both residential gardens and commercial landscapes. This is a clumping cultivar that will produce new plants over time around its base. It adapts to full sun, heat, aridity and winter cold to 15°F. Like other agaves, once established it requires little care or attention. Another cultivar, A. a. ‘Mediopicta’ has similar arching leaves with striking blue-gray margins and a yellow mid-stripe.
- Agave americana mediopicta alba, nice variegeted agave, Plant in full sun to light shade and irrigate only occasionally in coastal gardens (seems to suffer from edema from over watering) to regularly in hotter inland gardens. A stunning plant for large containers or planted in a protected spot in the succulent garden.
