Agave ‘Blue Glow’ – A beautiful smaller Agave with solitary rosettes slowly growing to 2 feet tall and 3 feet across with 18 inch long by 1-1 1/2 inch wide blue green leaves that have red margins edged with yellow and bearing tiny soft spines and a stout short red terminal spine. Plant in full sun. Little irrigation required. Though hardiness is not known our original plant has withstood temperatures of 28 F and we suspect the plant should be much hardier; Agave ocahui is known to tolerate temperatures down to 15 ° F and thought to be able to able to go down to 5° F – time will tell. Great in containers or in groups – especially nice where back lighting can light up the red and yellow margin.
