Genus of succulent, mostly native to the hot and dry regions of Mexico southern states of North America, now naturalised to the Mediterranean area. The leaves are arranged in a rosette. They are fleshy with a thorn at the tip and often sharply toothed at the edges. After many years it produces inflorescences of pale yellow, bell-shaped flowers at the end of extremely long stalks. Agave Lophantha Quadricolor – solitary or slowly clumping succulent rosette, up to 40 cm tall, 60 cm in diameter. Leaves are characteristically variegated with four distinct colours. Suited for light shade to full sun, but better with some shade in summer. Plants cultivated outdoors are more drought tolerant and can take some heat and full sun. It grows fairly fast in summer if provided with copious water, but allow to dry thoroughly before watering again. During the winter months, one should only water enough to keep the leaves from shrivelling.
