    Description

    Agave ‘Blue Flame’ is an exciting and low-maintenance succulent, popular for its cool blue hue and low-chill vibes. This stunning hybrid captivates with its dazzling, chalky blue-green leaves and graceful, incurved leaf-tips that resemble a gas flame.

    A hybrid of Agave attenuata and Agave shawii, ‘Blue Flame’ is an agave with a large blue rosette that is typically 2.5-3 ft. tall and 3 ft. wide. Clumps of offsets or pups can form a mass up to 5 ft. tall and 10 ft wide. The smooth, pliable leaves have finely serrated edges and a terminal spine. A glaucous, waxy cuticle covers the surface giving a blue cast to the leaves.

    In the landscape or containers, Blue Flame Agave is visually striking. Use in the garden as a focal point, an accent, a border, or in groups. Blue Flame is suited to a variety of styles and adds a touch of blue in a waterwise garden.

    Easy to grow and drought tolerant, Agave Blue Flame is a low maintenance plant, making it an ideal choice for gardens of all sizes. With its distinctive flame-like appearance and luminous color, this agave hybrid adds beauty and drama to any landscape. Order your Blue Flame Agave today for delivery to your home.

    Plant Care

    Plant your Agave Blue Flame in well-draining soil. Use a porous soil like Kellogg Palm & Cactus Mix and to mix with your native soil or use straight out of the bag as a potting mix for patio containers. In coastal gardens, plant in full sun. In hotter, inland gardens, provide light shade in the hot afternoons to help prevent leaf burn.

    After planting, thoroughly water to help the soil settle around the roots. Water as needed when the soil is completely dry. This agave is drought tolerant but has more vigor with some regular irrigation. Water only when the soil is completely dry. Excessive water will lead to rot. Avoid watering your Agave Blue Flame from above. The water can wash off the waxy, chalky surface on the leaf and alter the color of your Blue Flame.

    A hybrid of Agave attenuata and Agave shawii, Blue Flame is hardy to at least 25℉, approximately 8 degrees more cold tolerant than A. attenuata.

    Blue Flame Agave can produce numerous pups from the base of the plant and develop into large clumps or colonies. For a solitary appearance or to maintain size, remove the offsets with pruners to divide and/or dispose of pups. They are easiest to remove when they are young and small.

    Agaves are monocarpic plants, which means they only flower once when they reach maturity. The rosette will eventually die when the flower is done blooming. The plant can remain in flower for a long period of time. The remaining offsets or pups will continue to grow until they mature and flower. Blue Flame typically matures and blooms after several years (generally within 15-20 years) on a 15 ft. tall stalk.

    FAQ's

    Q: Is Blue Flame Agave a blue version of Fox Tail Agave?
    A: Blue Flame Agave is a hybrid between Agave shawii and Agave attenuata (the Fox Tail Agave) - so it is related, but not exactly the same.

    Q: What are the differences between the Fox Tail Agave and Blue Flame Agave?
    A: Like the Fox Tail Agave, Blue Flame has soft pliable leaves, but the green-leafed Fox Tail Agave has smooth margins whereas Blue Flame’s blue-green leaves have finely serrated teeth on the leaf margins and a terminal spine. Also, Agave attenuata is not as cold hardy as the Blue Flame hybrid.
