"Whale's Tongue Agave"
Making its first appearance in the 1980’s, this awesome and HARDY Agave set the succulent world abuzz! Slightly cupped silver to powdery-blue ovate leaves ending in terminal spines form a surreal, spectacular, solitary architectural rosette, 3-4’ tall and up to 6’ across in 4-7 years, especially with Summer water. A 12’ bloom stalk emerges after 10-20 years bearing chartreuse flowers. Luckily, “Whale’s Tongue” is EASY and low maintenance but must have well-drained soil. Extremely heat tolerant, provide some Summer water in desert-hot locales. Magnificent planted in multiples.
