Cultivation Notes

 

Agave ‘Blue Flame’ is a striking blue-green Agave with beautiful curving margins with light serration, and a rosette-forming habit, forming into clumps that can span 10 feet wide or more, the individual rosettes are usually 2 and a half to three feet tall and wide. It’s a cross between Agave shawii and Agave attenuata, making it more cold hardy and frost tolerant once mature and established. It is one of my favorites for landscape designs because of its structural quality, the shape of its leaves really does appear flame-like.
