Beautiful! Your collection is quite striking and I appreciate any opportunity one takes to share agaves! I wonder if the second, reddish purple brown one is indeed and agave? Perhaps a Dykia?

Sheila said...

Danger -yes! You are right, it is a dyckia! Thanks for the correction!

Beautiful photos.

Those are lovely Agaves. I envy you. I've tried to grow them is Seattle without much success. The top photo reminds me that my Agave parryi truncata died just this past winter.

My husband is an avid collector of succulents and cacti. One of his favorite plants are Agave. I can't wait to show him your collection!

Lovely plants and lovely photos! Any reason to celebrate the agave is OK by me.

Last summer I became fascinated with agaves and acquired several. Last winter was our worst on record. This spring I have fewer agaves! From now on, only in planters that can be wheeled into the garage! Your photos are beautful!

Nice collection of Agave! Very beautiful. I have thee types of agaves myself. They are pretty to look, but painful to touch :)

One Tequila, Two Tequila, Three Tequila, Floor! I wish an Agave would stay alive here. They would look great on either side of the driveway!
