Spikey and soft blue-green, the Blue Glow Agave (Agave attenuata x ocahui 'Blue Glow') adds pointed rosette-shaped mounds of geometrically arranged sword-like foliage! Incredible visual interest throughout the garden or in containers that won’t be missed!

Agave are easy to grow and feature stiff foliage that grows out and up in a perfectly symmetrical sphere. Each margin and pointed edge features a fiery red border to add definition and interest to your plant. Salt tolerant and full sun-loving plants, use these in the hell-strip along the road or on coastal gardens, pollinator gardens and formal plantings.
