Agave geminiflora 'Leaping Lizards' (Leaping Lizards Twin Flowered Agave) An attractive small agave with narrow, dark green unarmed flexible leaves that are edged with a cream to light yellow margin. The species with its all green leaves, which often number in the 100's, cascade from the center of the plant forming a dense rounded rosette to 2 to 3 feet tall by as wide and clustering after flowering. We would expect 'Leaping Lizards' to have a similar growth form. Plant in full sun along coast and part sun to light shade in hot inland gardens. Fairly dry growing, but looks better with some summer watering. Hardy to 25 F. For more information on this species, see our listing of Agave geminiflora. With its beautiful and unusual leave this plant should be an attractive plant in a large container or planted in the rock garden or foreground of a succulent garden. 'Leaping Lizards' is variegated mutation that was discovered at Monterey Bay Nursery in Watsonville and first released in 2018. We first saw this plant at the wonderful Ruth Bancroft Garden in Watsonville.  This description is based on our research and observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We will also incorporate comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have some additional information about this plant, in particular if this information is contrary to what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Agave geminiflora 'Leaping Lizards'.
