Agave 'Blue Glow': Rosettes of smooth spineless foliage have a distinctly blue cast (A. 'Blue Flame' is similar). Use these versatile plants for drama in pots and sunny gardens. Prefers a bit of shade in low desert.
Agaves and aloesÂ are two of the toughest groups of plants for a dry garden. In CaliforniaÂ agaves and aloes are becoming increasinglyÂ essential as water supplies are limited and plants and landscapes need to be more drought tolerant.
Century Plant, Agave americana : mine is not nearly this big and is only about 5 years old. it stabs me a lot with its needle sharp/hard spine at the end of each leaf and reminds me to be more careful around smaller more delicate plants that sit close to it.
