Beschorneria yuccoides Flamingo Glow ['Besys'] PP22,162 (Variegated Amole) - An attractive variegated selection of Amole (Beschorneria yuccoides) the Agave relative from Mexico that has flexible unarmed leaves. This golden-variegated sport grows to form multiple rosettes of soft gray green leaves to 3 to 5 feet tall that have an attractive central stripe of yellow. In summer appear the stout pink colored stalks to 6 feet tall with pendulous green, pink-based flowers that are enclosed by reddish pink bracts. Plant in full sun, little water. Hardy to less than 15 F - Beschorneria yuccoides is the hardiest species of Beschorneria. Beschorneria was named in honor of Friedrich Wilhelm Christian Beschorner 1806-73, a German amateur botanist. This plant was a mutation discovered on a non-variegated Beschorneria yuccoides in a garden near Hamilton, New Zealand in 2005 by landscape designer Graeme Burton of Ohaupo, New Zealand. It received US Plant Patent 22,162 on September 27, 2011. This plant is also marketed using the name "Reality" and is very similar to a plant sold in Australia as 'Colourwise'. It is one of the new succulents introduced in the Tessera Succulents collection from Plug Connection.  The information on this page is based on research conducted in our nursery library and from online sources as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens that we have observed it in.
