    Agave ‘Blue Flame’ is a stunning and unique addition to any garden or landscape. The Blue Flame is a hybrid agave that is known for its striking chalky blue-green leaves and graceful incurved leaf-tips that resemble a gas flame. The smooth, pliable leaves are edged with finely serrated baby teeth and arranged in a symmetrical rosette that can grow up to 3 feet tall and wide. The Agave Blue Flame is a slow-growing variety and can take several years to reach maturity, but once it does, it will produce a tall, spike-like flower stalk that can reach up to 15 feet tall. Agaves are known for their drought tolerance and ability to thrive in hot, dry conditions. This makes Blue Flame an ideal choice for xeriscaping or for adding a touch of color to a rock garden, or succulent garden. Plant in large groupings or use as a focal point. Agave Blue Flame is a great choice for container gardening and looks fabulous!

    Agave Blue Flame is a hardy plant that can withstand temperatures as low as 20°F, making it a great choice for gardens in USDA hardiness zones 9 and above.

    Plant Care

    Agave Blue Flame is a visually appealing and low-maintenance succulent that is ideal for those looking to add a cool blue hue to their garden. When planting, select a location with well-draining soil and full sun exposure. The Blue Flame Agave prefers dry, hot conditions and can withstand drought, making it an excellent choice for those living in arid areas.  Provide light shade in hot inland climates to prevent scorching of the leaves. Pruning is not required.

    When planting, make sure to dig a hole twice as wide and deep as the agave's root ball. Fill the hole with some porous soil, like Kellogg Palm & Cactus Mix, and place the agave in it then add the remaining soil, making sure to compact the soil around the plant's base. Thoroughly water to help the soil settle around the roots.

    Agave Blue Flame is a drought-tolerant succulent and low maintenance. Water only when the soil is completely dry. Excessive water will lead to rot. Avoid watering your Agave Blue Flame leaves from overhead. The water can wash off the waxy, chalky surface and alter the color of your Blue Flame.  

    Agaves are monocarpic plants, which means they only flower once when they reach maturity and then the rosette will eventually die when the flower is done blooming. The plant can remain in flower for a long period of time. Agaves may produce offsets or pups before dying, which will continue to grow until they flower. Agave Blue Flame can produce pups and develop into large clumps that you will enjoy in your garden for a long time.

    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.
