A Desert Favorite with Unique Blooms

Why Fox Tail Agave Plants?

Fox Tail Agave, Swan’s Neck Agave, Soft Tip Agave or Lion’s Tail Agave - whichever name you prefer, this plant won’t disappoint.

The Fox Tail Agave features wide, tapered leaves ranging from pale to silvery green, making it the perfect complement to deeper green or red foliage in your landscape. Unlike other succulents, its leaves don't feature teeth or spines, making it a friendlier addition to your landscape.

But the real show of the Fox Tail Agave comes from its incredibly unique flowers. When mature, the Foxtail Agave blooms with a tall, curving stalk covered in tiny, yellow-green flowers, resembling an animal tail or neck. Once the flower dies back, seed pods will give way to new plants in the surrounding area!

A single rosette can grow up to 3-5 feet tall and 3-5 feet wide, with the flower stalk reaching out to 10 feet tall. It makes a unique, dramatic focal point in garden beds, or used in decorative containers.

The best part? Like most succulents, the Fox Tail Agave is impressively drought-tolerant and easy to grow. It can tolerate most soil types and can tolerate partial shade - and it's virtually pest- and disease-free, as well as deer-resistant.

Why FastGrowingTrees.com is Better

Not only is the Fox Tail Agave nearly impossible to find at big-box retailers and local garden centers - you won't find a healthier, better-developed Agave anywhere.

We’ve planted, grown and shipped your Fox Tail Agave with meticulous care, so you get a hassle-free succulent that’s ready to thrive in your landscape and burst with growth quickly.

The only catch? The Fox Tail Agave will sell out quickly - so you'll have to get it before it's gone. Order your own Fox Tail Agave today!
