Agave lophantha 'Quadricolor' - A very distinctive and attractive small agave to 12 to 18 inches tall by 2 feet wide with 6 to 12 inch long, dark green leaves edged with yellow and having a pale green midstripe. The yellow marginal stripes, highlighted by dark reddish teeth, flush red when grown in bright light to give the leaf four distinct colors. Plant in full sun to bright filtered light (best sheltered from full summer sun in hot climates) in a well-drained soil. Tolerates dry conditions but will grow much faster with regular summer irrigation - keep drier in winter. This cultivar was thought not as hardy as the species and we originally only listed it to 22° F but have had a gardener report to us that it has proven hardy to multiple nights with temperatures as low as 11° F in his South Carolina garden.
