Agaves Grow

While discussing the street side garden in SJC, I must include an update on the beautiful blue agaves that were planted three years ago. They are in a far corner, away from guests navigating getting in and out of their cars as well as children at play due to their ferocious spikes and thorny edges. They are so beautiful and producing lots of pups. There are additional succulents nearby as well as some lantana planted to intertwine with their blue spikes.

Three years ago this is what they looked like. All good things come to those who wait!

I love agaves, what amazing growth yours are experiencing, do you have any special tips?

Becc, I must admit, these guys are rudely ignored all year with an exception of a weekly watering. I can take no credit!
