Becomes top heavy, the Dolly Parton of the Agave family. Like Dolly, this is a beauty with the most dramatic bud marking in the family. The leaves continue to get wider and wider with each new generation and are set off by the severe spines along the edges and wonderfully colorful terminal spines. Once your plant gets too top heavy to stand, add decorative rocks around the base as a brace. Your efforts will be worth it as A. colorata is a real show stopper. Fully grown at 2′+ tall.
Size: 7-8 inches in diameter
