Does anyone have this? Agave Desmettiana Variegata Joe Hoak.

Anyone know where to get one?

I have Agave Desmettiana Variegata which are easy to grow here in LA, but this Joe Hoak version is gorgeous. Does this version grow the same way?

Beautiful, Hoovb! I know you've told us before (but I can't remember), what is the silver plant on the left & the yellow-flowering one below, please?

Yorkimiki, I bought one recently from Cordova Gardens in Encinitas, large specimen, about $40. I believe. Would be a bit of a drive for you, but doable. There are several nurseries close together (that won't disappoint). You could make a day of it! Just make sure you bring a truck or minivan to haul back your finds! LOL

Beautiful plants Hoovb and rosemarie. hoovb i like the way the other colors kind of compliment the Joe Hoak.

I love how creamy yellow almost white the color is.

My favorite agave used to be Medio Picta Alba (which I still absolutely adore) But now the Joe Hoak is slightly my favorite (maybe because I don't have one hehehhe ;) )

-This is my regular Variagated Desmetiatta sorry for spelling. In the pic it looks lighter than in real life. In real life its very green but has yellow variagations.
