Agave ‘Blue Glow’

Agave 'Blue Glow'

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.
