Agave isthmensis is a distinctive and attractive species within the Agave family, renowned for its compact size and striking appearance. Native to the Isthmus of Tehuantepec in Mexico, this small agave is a popular choice among succulent enthusiasts and gardeners for its unique form and color.
The plant features a dense rosette of short, wide leaves that are typically blue-green in color. The leaves of Agave isthmensis are notably thick and fleshy, with pronounced rippling or corrugation along their length, giving them a textured, wavy appearance. The edges of the leaves are often adorned with small teeth, and they culminate in a sharp terminal spine. This rosette form and the sculptural quality of the leaves make it an attractive and architecturally interesting plant.

All plants are shipped bare-root with the exception of House Plants and Plant Club Subscription Boxes. House plants and succulents will ship from separate locations and may arrive at different times. Orders ship Monday-Friday each week. Please allow 1-3 business days for your order to be processed. We ship within the USA and its outlying territories ONLY. Read our full policy here.
Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
