Fatal Attraction Agave
A very cool selection of a not-often-seen species! Fatal Attraction Agave features bluish green leaves and a pale midstripe down the center of each leaf. Leaves are heavily toothed, hence the name, but it certainly is an attractive thing!
Plant in extremely well draining soil in the brightest conditions if planting in ground. Otherwise it makes a fantastic container specimen and can be brought indoors when very cold weather is in the forecast.
