The name 'Ripple Effect' refers to the slight waviness of the leaves. The intense blue-green leaves are reminiscent of water, especially as the waxy coating draws out their blue coloring. Toothed marginal spines and extremely long, cinnamon brown terminal spines accentuate the bright colors of the leaves. Developed by Hans Hansen from Agave 'Mr. Ripple' and introduced through Walters Gardens, Inc. The common name "Century Plant" is alluding to the belief that it takes 100 years to bloom. In reality, Agaves bloom after 15-20 years, and the main crown dies after blooming.
