Long leaves have extremely wavy margins and are heavily spotted in chocolate color. Forms a low, broad spreading rosette. Long strappy wriggly leaves look truly unique trailing over the edge of decorative containers. When mature, tall spikes of burgundy brown, tubular flowers appear in late spring and fall, and can reach 4' in height. Does not die after flowering like other Agave.
