Agave attenuata is a species of agave sometimes known as the "lion's tail," "swan's neck," or "foxtail" for its development of a curved stem, unusual among agaves. Native to Mexico, as one of the unarmed agaves, it is popular as an ornamental plant in gardens in many other places.
The stems typically range from (20–60 in) in length. The leaves are ovate-acuminate, (20–28 in) long and (5–6 in) wide, pale in color, ranging from a light gray to a light yellowish green. There are no teeth, nor terminal spines.
In cultivation, Agave attenuata prefer relatively moist loamy soil, although it can cope with poor soil and dry conditions. It should be protected from direct sunlight in summer and from long periods of frost.
