February Plant of the Month- Fatal Attraction

Fatal Attraction Agave

Have you ever had one of those Valentine’s that you thought might hurt you but you just couldn’t resist? Fatal Attraction Agave is that plant. This spiny little guy has beautiful deep green foliage with a lighter green center stripe and red margins. Oh, and those margins? Have some wicked red teeth! Also a terminal spine.

Careful where you plant this one! It will get about 1 or 2 feet tall and wide. Probably not the best choice for a walkway. Don’t let that scare you away though, it’s also got its charms.

It’s deer resistant and a super low water user making it super easy to grow. It will look great in your rock garden or mixed with blooming perennials. Maybe even mixed in with some cascading rose bushes. They also do well in containers.

If you can’t resist Fatal Attraction, grab one quick, we only received a handful. We also got a TON of new agaves and yuccas if this particular agave is not your type. Come take a look!
