Agave lophantha quadricolor is a cultivar of Agave lophantha, a succulent plant species that is native to Mexico. The exact origin of this cultivar is unclear, but it is thought to have been developed in cultivation.
In terms of cold hardiness, Agave lophantha quadricolor is considered to be relatively cold-tolerant for an agave. It can tolerate temperatures as low as 15°F for short periods of time. However, it is still important to protect the plant from extended periods of freezing temperatures, as this can damage or kill the plant.
When mature, Agave lophantha quadricolor can reach a height of 1-2 feet and a spread of 2-3 feet. This makes it a relatively compact agave compared to some of its larger relatives, such as Agave americana, which can grow up to 8 feet tall.
Agave design and application suggestions:
Agaves are a wonderfully diverse group of plants. Agaves can be small and solitary like our Agave victoria-reginae or big and bold like our Agave americana variegata. Equally suited for container gardening or used in landscape applications with proper climate conditions. Group small and mid-sized agaves in the landscape for impact and place larger agaves to add big bold accents. You can do the same with container gardening. A mix of different sized agaves with different growth habits, leaf shapes and colors in nice containers can give any room or patio an impactful artistic boost.
