Of all the Agaves available at Peacock Horticultural Nursery, I think Agave ‘Blue Glow’ has to be one of my favorites. Developed by Kelly Griffin, this is supposedly a cross between Agave ocahui and Agave attenata. The beautiful blue-green leaves are outlined in red and translucent yellow with a red terminal spine.
This Agave rarely pups and will ultimately reach it’s maximum size at about 2′ x 2′. Not totally sure of the hardiness yet. I overwintered mine in a unheated hoop house and we were down to about 25 F here this last winter. Really looks beautiful in a pot with the sun shining through the translucent yeallow margins.
