Agave attenuata (Succulents)

A widely known and beloved succulent due to its simple yet majestic characteristics. With the typical rosette shape that, in nature, reaches a meter and a half in diameter, it is formed of flat and wide leaves, longer than 50 cm and culminating in a point less rigid and sharp than the other agave species (hence the latin name that means “weak”). The epidermis is pleasantly tenuous, of a beautiful opaque green which tends to a bluish tone, covered in a sort of bloom that protects it from weathering and gives it its typical elegant and delicate look. When it reaches maturity from the center of the rosette, a stem up to several meters long grows, completely studded with small clusters of greenish-white flowers that fall like a sort of gigantic curved ear (hence the common name of “Swan neck Agave”).
