A mature Agave Attenuata will send up a 5’-10’ curved flower arching upwards and backwards, similar to that of a fox’s tail. It’s no wonder how the attenuata received it’s common name. This was the first truly spineless agave. Many variegated sports and cultivars have emerged from this plant, but this was the original. Native to Central Mexico, first put into cultivation in the early 1800’s, but there are very few sightings of this plant in nature today. Very popular ornamental plant in cultivation, but very rare in the wild. The soft green color of the attenuata allows it to be used in a number of applications. Green will never go out of style in a garden.
