Agave Americana Mediopicta

Solitary or slowly clumping succulent rosette that will grow to a height of 120 centimetres (47 inches) 
The var. medio-picta 'Alba' is a medium to smaller growing form of Agave americana.

Leaves: Short, lanceolate, narrowed above the thickened base, that arch slightly above the middle of the lamina and this is a characteristic feature of this species. The leaves of this cultivar are pleasantly variegated with a greyish-white to creamy-white central broad band down the centre of each leaf, with grey-blue sharp-spined edges and a long terminal spine. 
Flowers: Inflorescence up to 5 metres (16 feet) tall or more. Slender, straight, long oval in outline and rather open. The individual flowers are yellow-green and attract hummingbirds. Flower spikes are also variegated.
Blooming season: Summer, however in warmer climates the Century Plant doesn't bloom until it is a decade old  and not a century! (up to 35 years or more in cool climates) and the plant dies after flowering.
