Agave attenuata (Fox Tail Agave) Details

Agave attenuata, commonly known as Fox Tail Agave or Lions Tail Agave, is a large succulent that features broad and soft, pale blue-green leaves. It has stout and curving stems that push the plant up to 1 m high. Leaves emerge from a tight central spear to arch gracefully back, looking a bit like a large open green flower. Eventually old leaves fall off, leaving a naked stem. This Agave grows best in full sun with a well-drained soil. It is tolerant of dry conditions but will benefit from water during extended dry periods. Agave attenuata is commonly used as an attractive feature in modern gardens, particularly when planted in clusters or used to contrast with other colours and forms. It is also ideal for mixed plantings, rock gardens, maintaining in a container, planting around the pool and other outdoor living areas, or including in Mediterranean garden themes.
