Product Description

Agave isthmensis cv. DELAWARE variegated refers to a variegated cultivar of Agave isthmensis originally offered by the US nursery NCS

Agave isthmensis cv. DELAWARE variegated is known for its compact size and rosette form. Variegated means that the plant exhibits different colored zones in the leaves, typically in patterns of green mixed with yellow, cream, or white. This particular cultivar, 'DELAWARE', is likely a named variety known for specific patterns or characteristics of variegation. Here is a detailed description and cultivation tips:

Description

  1. Growth Habit: Agave isthmensis generally forms a dense, symmetrical rosette. The 'DELAWARE' cultivar would exhibit this same growth pattern.

  2. Leaf Characteristics: The leaves are short and wide, typically blue-green in color. In the variegated 'DELAWARE' cultivar, these leaves would display streaks or margins of a different color, such as yellow, cream, or white. The variegation can vary from plant to plant, making each specimen unique.

  3. Size: This agave is smaller compared to many other agave species, making it suitable for container growth or small garden spaces.

  4. Spines: The leaves typically end in a sharp point, and there may be small spines along the leaf margins. The extent and sharpness of the spines can vary.

  5. Flowers: Like other agaves, Agave isthmensis blooms once in its lifetime, usually after many years. The flower stalk is tall and impressive, but flowering means the end of the plant's lifecycle.

Cultivation

  1. Light: Agave isthmensis cv. DELAWARE variegated thrives in full sun but can tolerate partial shade. Variegated varieties sometimes prefer a bit less direct sunlight than their non-variegated counterparts to prevent leaf burn.

  2. Soil: Well-draining soil is crucial. Use a cactus or succulent mix, or amend regular garden soil with sand or perlite.

  3. Watering: Water deeply but infrequently, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot.

  4. Temperature: It prefers warm climates and is not frost-tolerant. In colder regions, it should be grown in containers and brought indoors or protected during the winter.

  5. Fertilizing: Fertilize sparingly, if at all. A small amount of cactus fertilizer during the growing season can be beneficial but is not necessary.

  6. Propagation: This plant can be propagated from offsets or pups that form around the base of the plant.

Agave isthmensis cv. DELAWARE variegated is a highly ornamental plant, prized for its striking leaf variegation and compact size. It's well-suited for rock gardens, succulent collections, and as a container plant. The variegation adds an extra level of aesthetic appeal, making each plant somewhat unique in appearance.
