Agave Joe Hoak

Agave Joe Hoak available at an Orange County Wholesale Succulent and Nursery

A hardy sport of “The Variegated Smooth Agave” , agave ‘Joe Hoak’, has a soft creme and green paintbrush stroke down the center of each leaf. Each leaf also varies in variegation, but a tricolor appearance sets it apart from its regular variegated counterpart. This agave is said to be from Hoak’s Nursery in Miami, Florida, owned by Joe Hoak. Not a common plant in many gardens, slow growing, mildly expensive, but a magnificent sight.
