Agave americana var. protoamericana 'Lemon Lime'

Y05-74 — Zone 8b to 10Garden Origin

Lemon Lime Agave!

This Agave americana variegate is not your typical white or yellow or cream combined with green. The variegation is a bizarre combination of greens. Down the center of each leaf runs a broad central band that is a light greenish color, reminiscent of cream of spinach soup. The outer leaf margins are a bluish kale-green color. We suppose Agave 'Spinach and Kale Soup' would be a hard cultivar name to promote!


Over all the form of the plant is much like any Agave americana but the leaves are a bit longer and tend to have a slight wavy hint to them. A plant that draws many comments and is beautiful in an odd sort of way regardless of how you describe the color combination.

Notes and observations about this plant

difficult in Georgia by Barry
In Brunswick, GA, I have tried this one various times during my years of agave growing. However, it has been extremely difficult to keep alive in the ground. It ALWAYS dies, rots, "disentegrates", etc. I am currently growing maybe my 7th one.....so we'll see how it goes! lol (Posted on 6/2/12)
Wise investment by jerry
I wouldn't know how to begin to describe this incredibly beautiful agave. A wise investment for your garden. (Posted on 11/13/11)
