Squid agave (Agave bracteosa )
For those who ooh and aah over spiky drama in the garden, as I do, check out Ivette Soler’s agave love-fest at The Germinatrix. Man, she’s inspired me to try to squeeze a few more agaves into my tiny garden. I particularly love the sharkskin agave, though it’s gigantic, and ‘Blue Flame.’
If I didn’t have so much shade in the back yard, I could plant a few more. Hmm, do I really need that shade tree?
