Description

4" tall x 5" wide. Many years of growing this miniature Century Plant in Horticulturist David Salman's Santa Fe cacti gardens convinced him of its desirability. He was finally able to secure seed of this rare, very cold hardy form of the species. Agave toumeyana v. bella's thin, stiff leaves are edged with white stripes and adorned with curling white threads giving the small rosettes an appealing tidy appearance. A wonderful companion plant for Echinocereus and Escobaria cacti species. (seed propagated)
