Blue Glow agave

Agave ‘Blue Glow’


Blue Glow agave is a recent introduction into the crowded field of agaves. It is a small growing hybrid between A. attenuata and A. ocahui that grows to 18-24 in. dia. with narrow and sharply pointed blue-green leaves with red margins. This is a monocarpic cultivar that grows in solitary rosettes, making it useful for containers, rock gardens and mass plantings. Care should be taken to place this plant where its sharp spines can be avoided. Early plantings indicate a tolerance of temperatures of at least 28°F.
