Agave geminiflora

Agave, Twin-flowered

One of the most popular agaves, it rapidly forms a 3-4 foot symmetrical rosette of narrow, dark green leaves. The smooth leaves have a terminal spine, and the margins are often edged with fine white fibers. Can grow in both sun and shade. As with most agaves, this plant blooms once, and then dies. At the end of its life cycle, about 10 years, it will send up a spectacular 15-18 foot tall flower spike!

Agave virginica 'Spot'

Rattlesnake Aloe

AKA: Manfreda virginica, False Aloe, American Aloe or Rattlesnake Aloe. This wild one has shiny, dark green, purple-spotted, succulent leaves up to 16'' long. The foliage is very attractive in a rock garden. The 1'' flowers have a fragrance like Easter lilies and bloom in clusters on a loose spike on top of tall 4-6' stalks! Long summer bloom occasionally extends into fall. Flowers give way to capsule-like fruit. Especially loved by hummingbirds. Juvenile plants do not show spots. Dry completely between waterings.
