Plant Sizing Guide

The Fox Tail Agave, scientifically known as Agave attenuata, is a distinctive succulent prized for its unique rosette of thick, fleshy leaves that arch gracefully outward, resembling a cascading fountain or a fox's tail. Native to Mexico, this agave species is characterized by its lack of spines, in contrast to many other agave varieties, making it more user-friendly in gardens and landscapes. The leaves are a soft, pale green and have a smooth, almost tropical appearance. Fox Tail Agaves are well-suited to arid and coastal conditions and are often used in landscaping to provide a striking focal point. Drought-tolerant and relatively low-maintenance, they thrive in well-draining soil and under full to partial sun exposure, making them an excellent choice for both novice and experienced gardeners seeking an attractive and resilient succulent.
