Agave 'Blue Glow'

Size

An especially slow-growing succulent, Agave 'Blue Glow' features chalky, blue-green leaves with yellow and red margins that comprise perfectly symmetrical rosettes, reaching up to 24 inches tall and 36 inches wide. A stunning specimen on its own, this variety boasts short red spines on each leaf tip as well as finely serrated margins, so be sure to handle with care – and place away from a highly trafficked area of your home, where it could snag the clothing of passersby!

Agave are known for their ability to thrive in difficult environments, so don’t expect this variety to require a lot of coddling. In fact, a brightly lit location and an occasional but thorough watering are the keys to a robust Agave ‘Blue Glow.’ A porous soil mixture, supplemented with perlite or pumice, will safeguard against any accidental overwatering, as will a pot with a sufficient drainage hole. During the winter months, take care to protect this succulent from frost, and be mindful of the fact that its sap can be irritating to the skin – so also plan to protect this variety from curious children or pets! 

While ‘Blue Glow’ is monocarpic – meaning that it will begin to die back after flowering – its yellow blooms will emerge on stalks up to 10 feet tall only once the plant has matured over the course of a decade or more.
