This fantastic agave is a Japanese selection featuring blue-gray leaves with beautiful creamy-white edges. The terminal spines emerge a light brown color, changing to burgundy-brown with maturity. 'Kissho Kan' translates to 'happy or lucky crown'. Grows to only one foot tall by one foot wide so excellent as a container specimen and winter houseplant.
