Ray of Light Fox Tail Agave

Agave attenuata 'Ray of Light'

A gorgeous variegated cultivar of the Fox Tail Agave.  Unlike many other Agaves, Agave attenuata has soft fleshy leaves as opposed to spiney hard leaves with brutally pointed tips.  That alone makes this Agave a popular selection for the landscape.  What starts off as a single rosette will soon grow 'pups' at the base on eventually in it's maturity will form a clump of multiple rosettes reaching about 4 feet tall by 6-7 feet wide after many years of growth.  The pups can easily be cut off and regrown.  The center of each rosette looks spear-like where the new leaves emerge.  Plant Agave Ray of Light in full sun or shade.  This plant is quite drought and deer tolerant and is suitable for Xeriscaping but looks best with regular supplimental water.  Also very popular for coastal gardens.  Hardy to 28 deg. F.
