Agave Attenuata. Foxtail Agave.
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.
Great for modern and minimalistic gardens, it's bold silhouette makes a wonderful architectural centrepiece. Offsets easily.
