Common Name: Lion's Tail (Foxtail)
Availabilty: In Stock
Agave attenuata or Lion's Tail (Foxtail), as it can be more commonly known, is a striking and unique pale-green evergreen with an amazing stalk protruding and flowering to 2.5 m once every few years, hence the nickname 'Lion's tail' or 'foxtail'. Small, insignificant white flowers bloom on the long stalk irregularly, but are highly attractive to bird and insect life.
Growing 800mm - 1.2 m, yet often growing wider than it is tall as it reaches maturity, renders the Agave ideal for specimen planting or tub planting. Incredibly hardy, this showstopper thrives where other plants usually struggle to grow. The Agave is long living and hardy, with very little maintenance necessary to remain gorgeous. Native to Mexico, this guy is even tolerant of very dry climates.
Hardy; frost & wind tolerant. Tolerant of most soils. Full sun or part shade.
