Agave attenuata – Foxtail Agave

Agave attenuata - (Mature size: 4 - 5 feet high and 6 - 8 feet wide) with clusters of pups tucked under its leaves, Agave attenuata is best planted where it can spread out. Pups are easily removed, but the cluster is quite striking. Tiny pale green flowers become many new plantlets that can be plucked off the stem and rooted. Native to Mexico, this is a tropical agave, prefers partial shade to scorching sun and looks best with regular water.
