Plant Details
Botanical Name:
Agave attenuata

Common Name(s):
Fox Tail Agave

Mountain States Nursery
Makes a bold statement in the garden because of its tropical form. Even light frost can damage succulent leaves. Great for containers. In the low desert partial sun will be best. If it becomes top heavy, simply cut and stick in ground to root. Not a fast grower. Light green foliage. This will also die after flowering but pups around the mother will survive. Distinctive with its large rosette of leaves perched on a long curving trunk. Soil tolerant. No teeth. From Mexico Central Jalisco.
