The Agave attenuata is a relatively fast growing Agave and easy to grow. 

Rosettes of silvery pale green fleshy leaves curve elegantly at their tip and sit on top of a thick Grey/Green stem which can reach a height of up to 5ft when really mature. Unusually for an Agave the leaves are spineless and lack a terminal spine too. 

Known also as the 'Foxtail' Agave because of the tall dense racemes of Greenish Yellow bell shaped flowers which arch over, because of the weight of them.  

 

Please Note: Succulents change colour throughout the year and the plants we deliver can look different from the pictures. All plants are shipped bare root (without soil).
