Agave Blue Glow

Agave Blue Glow is a beautiful smaller Agave with solitary rosettes slowly growing to 2 feet tall and 3 feet across with 18 inch long by 1-1 1/2 inch wide blue-green leaves that have red margins edged with yellow and bearing tiny soft spines and a stout short red terminal spine. When the plant matures it produces a 10' tall unbranched reddish flower spike, sometimes solitary but at other time subtended by a multitude of smaller 2'-3' spikes, that are covered for most of the length with greenish white flowers with long exserted red stamens. 

Plant in full to part sun in a well-draining soil. Little irrigation required. Great in containers or in groups, especially nice where back lighting can light up the red and yellow margin. Birds and bees go crazy for flowers.

Agave 'Blue Glow' is considered to be a hybrid between Agave attenuata and Agave ocahui and reportedly was a Kelly Griffin hybrid done while he worked at Rancho Soledad Nursery in Rancho Santa Fe. It is a beautiful plant that looks nothing like either parent, though it apparently inherits the more durable tougher leaves, smaller size, solitary habit and sharp terminal spine of Agave ocahui while getting the broader leaves and blue green color from Agave attenuata.
