I have that plant, I think it goes by three different names, I can't see it tonight, if I don't forget I will take out the label, and report back. If I'm wrong I would appreciate the correct name as well. This one will not get too large thank goodness. Norma

More than three, Norma:

Agave 'Cornelius', Agave 'Quasimodo', Agave 'Quasimoto', Agave americana 'Marginata Aurea Monstrosa', Agave 'Hummel's Dwarf Cornelius', Agave 'Incurva Marginata', and Agave 'Marginata Aurea Monstrosa', and others.

'Cornelius' should be named for it's discoverer, Dr. Cornelius, a friend of Ed Hummel.
