Agave 'Desert Diamond' has green leaves with bright cream and prominent margins form a round rosette. The tiny cinnamon brown marginal and terminal spines emerge yellow, transition to light brown, and then finally age to cinnamon brown. This small agave is perfect for container culture and makes a great houseplant in the winter for a sunny windowsill. A sport of 'Kissho Kan'.
