Agave attenuata: Agave attenuata is one of several varieties of agave that are native to Mexico. The plant is commonly known as a foxtail or dragon tree agave, and grows to a height of approximately 1 to 1.5 metres. It is a succulent, so its leaves are rubbery and puff up when the plant has plenty of water. The leaves vary in colour from soft green to bright blue green or even yellow and green striped. Unlike some other agave plants, the agave attenuata does not have dangerous spines on its leaves.
