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 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. We also will incorporate comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that might aid others in growing Agave 'Quasimoto Streaker'.
