Agave geminiflora

Agave geminiflora spangled in morning dew is one of my favorite sights these mornings.
Slow growing, doesn’t offset, rare denizen of open oak woodland in Mexico, and just about everybody agrees the best thing in a container since Nutella.
The Ruth Bancroft Garden has more history and cultural information here.

  1. I looooove Agave geminiflora. I have a large and sprawling one in a container, and I never get sick of it. Mine is in the shade so its leaves are soft and floppy.

    Gerhard, I’ve so abused this agave, forgetting to water it etc, and even was thinking of planting it in the ground. Glad I didn’t — so good in a pot.
