This agave is a perennial succulent plant that makes a bold scuptural statement in the garden. It has a thick trunk, often branching at the base, and bears rosettes of large sword shaped grey-green leaves with a bluish tinge.
Agave attenuata is very hardy and pest free. They grow best in a sunny spot in well drained open soil, and are drought tolerant. They don't like to sit in waterlogged soil. They are very suitable for container growing. Thay can become weedy in NSW and Victoria.
Agave attenuata is native to Mexico.
