Agave Shira-ito-no-ohi Bicolor
The Agave Shira-ito-no-ohi Bicolor is a very rare variegated version of the Agave Shira-ito-no-ohi. Very symmetrical compact rosettes are made up of narrow leaves which are rigid and dagger-like with creamy-white margins. In the Bicolor, instead of being just one uniform green colour, there is a part of the rosette where the leaves are totally creamy-white giving it a really striking appearance. There are no marginal teeth on the leaves but instead there are curly white fibres spreading in all directions. the leaf tips are also quite sharp.

Mostly solitary these agaves are very attractive although very slow growing. Easy to grow.
