Plant Bio

Unlike many Agaves, Agave Attenuata (Foxtail Agave) is an evergreen perennial succulent which produces a handsome rosette of silvery pale green leaves, without teeth or terminal spines. The rosette is composed of flexible leaves which gracefully arch back, resembling an open flower. This Agave derives its common name from the impressive arching flower stalk which emerges from the rosette in summer. Reaching up to 5-10 ft. in height, it reflexes back towards the ground before arching up again like a foxtail. It bears greenish-yellow flowers which give way to seed pods and many new plantlets. This Agave makes a dramatic focal point or accent & can be used in decorative pots.

Choose an area that gets plenty of sunlight. Fox Tail Agave is a sturdy plant that tolerates both under and overwatering well. For optimal growth, Fox Tail Agave needs a thorough watering once a week during warm weather. During times of growth, Fox Tail Agave can withstand a small amount of balanced liquid fertilizer, but most of the time the plant does not need additional fertilizing.
