Agave lophantha 'Quadricolor'
Also known as Agave univittata 'Quadricolor', A. univittata Variegated, A. kerchovei 'Pectinata' and 'Goshiki Bandai' (or alternately 'Goshikibandai'), this plant is extremely decorative. It remains relatively small and thus makes a great potted specimen. It's not as hardy as the species but is listed as being hardy to about 22 ° F. It matures to about 1 foot in diameter with 6 to 8 inch long dark green leaves edged with yellow and having a pale green midstripe. The yellow marginal stripe is highlighted by dark reddish teeth when grown in bright light, giving the leaf four distinct colors.
