AGAVE ‘Kisso Kan.’
Lucky Crown, Century Plant. This
rare dwarf Agave is a popular Japanese selection that is now
becoming in high demand from collectors in the US. Unlike
many Agaves which grow to be huge specimens, ‘Kissho Kan’
stays small, eventually growing only about a foot high. Its
smaller size makes it ideal for growing in patio pots and
troughs with other succulents. The plant forms a remarkably
symmetrical, round rosette of soft blue-grey to blue-green
leaves with clean ivory, toothed margins. Spines line the
margins of each leaf. The spines emerge yellow, transition
to light brown, and then finally age to cinnamon brown. The
thick and rigid leaves are tough as nails, almost
plastic-like to the touch, so you can be sure that deer and
other pests won’t touch this plant. Another common name for
this plant is Dwarf Variegated Butterfly Agave. Grows 15"
tall and 18" wide. A tender perennial that makes a great
quilted, shiny, metallic green-purple foliage. A robust
grower. Excellent in containers and water gardens. 48”
