Agave guiengola 'Medio picta' - A nicely variegated form of the large Guiengola Agave has the same large open rosettes of thick leaves of the species but with a broad central cream colored band surrounded by the gray-green leaf margins. Plant in full sun to light shade and irrigate only occasionally in coastal gardens (seems to suffer from edema from over watering) to regularly in hotter inland gardens where some shade is recommended. Protect from temperatures below 25 degrees F to avoid disfiguring the foliage. This is a dramatic plant for large containers or planted in a nice spot in the succulent garden. For more information on this species, see our listing for Agave guiengola. This plant came to us in 2012 from succulent collector and grower Tony Krock.  The information on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in the San Marcos Growers library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in our nursery, plants 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 guiengola 'Medio Picta'.
