Agave 'Blue Glow'
In a previous post I raved about the beauty of Agave 'Joe Hoak'. Perhaps even more beautiful is Agave 'Blue Glow', a hybrid of A. ocahui x A. attenuata. The leaves are edged with a thin strip of rich burgundy and a thread of gold. When back lit, the edges glow as if on fire. Superb!
I don't need to write much about this one; the pictures say it all. This is a solitary agave. There will be no pups. Will it possibly set seed? Will the seeds reproduce that same glory? Or when it blooms and dies, will it be gone? No matter--no matter at all: perfection is immortal.
