Excellent landscaping plant... nice color, and no sharp points. A bit cold sensitive (as all Agave attenuatas are).

Was referred to as Agave attenuata 'Nova' for decades, but now has officially been given a cultivar name.

Just like the regular form except maybe a bit less prolific in its suckering behavior, and slightly larger... and incredibly blue. The most unique characteristic is the blooms are upright instead of drooping. This is one of the most beautiful Agaves, and of all succulents, and very user friendly (nothing sharp or poisonous). However it is pricey and hard to find

Regional...
