Agave Dragon Toes is a smaller hybrid dwarf blue agave. The plants only grow to about 12 inches tall. Dragon Toes is prized for its soft looking grey/green but chunky thick leaves that are speckled with red tips. Each leaf has a very distinct red speckle imprint on it. This agave is great for smaller gardens and/or container growing. It is usually planted in full sun except for hot inland and desert gardens. Light shade in these hotter areas will prevent scorching of the foliage. Dragon Toes requires little irrigation but in the heat of summer some regular regularly watering will keep it more vigorous. It is cold hardy to at least 25 deg. F.
