This compact, symmetrical agave has dark green leaves which are decorated with white markings and thin white marginal fibers. The leaf edges are smooth, and end in a sharp spine. The unbranched flower spike is 10 to 12' tall and is densely loaded with dark purple flowers. This agave should be planted in full sun exposures to maintain the tight form. It is also tolerant of reflected heat.
