Agave 'Quasimoto Streaker' (White Cornelius Agave) - This small Agave forms a very attractive rosette to about 18 inches tall. The short strongly variegated cream to white and green leaves have undulating margins. Plants sucker to form small tight colonies. Plant in full sun in a well-drained soil and water occasionally to very little. This plant is a vegetative sport that San Marcos Growers Production Supervisor Arturo Garcia selected from one of our plants of Agave 'Cornelius' (AKA 'Montrose Variegata'). We named this plant 'Quasimoto Streaker' as a nod to the late Bill Baker who had always called Agave 'Cornelius' by the name Agave 'Quasimoto', in reference to a deformed dwarf by this name in Victor Hugo's Hunchback of Notre Dame - seems like an unfitting name for such an attractive plant but in the end it was Quasimoto's gentle and kind nature that proved to be a thing of rare beauty. Much of our description for this plant is based on how the parent plant has performed - more information on this plant on our listing for Agave 'Cornelius'. San Marcos Growers first introduced this plant to the horticultural trade in 2011.  The information on this page is based on the research that we have conducted about this plant in the San Marcos Growers library, from what we have found on reliable online sources, as well as from observations made of our crops of this plant growing in the nursery and of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we may have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Agave 'Quasimoto Streaker'.
