Agave Potatorum Kichiokan.
The Agave Potatorum Kichiokan is a stunning agave even though it is a relatively small variety. Compact rosettes of upcurving short thick, fleshy leaves are pale green colour with margins of yellow to pale green with beautiful imprinted patterns on their upper surface. The degree of variegation is very variable depending on light, heat and feeding. Typically have spiny margins and a sharp terminal point of a chestnut brown colour, so it is better to plant them away from walkways.

Great for exotic gardens, it's bold silhouette makes a wonderful architectural centrepiece.
