My love for succulents especially Agaves in not old but it is for sure obsessive. In fact, I have replaced many other plants in my collection with Agaves. The following are some of the Agaves in my succulent garden.
Agave victoria reginae
My favorite plant – Agave victoria reginae is slow but easy to grow plant characterized by a unique leaf pattern and formation.
Agave victoria reginae variegata
This variegated variety is even more beautiful and unique than its original form.
A very different formation and leaf style for an Agave. Agave bracteosa has ‘softer’ and spineless leaves – quite different from its cousins.
Another beautiful and unique form. Agave striata produces long, needle-like leaves of greyish green color.
A beautiful specimen plan with nicely arranged white leaves contrasted by reddish teeth and red terminal spines
Agave potatorum, Kissho Kan
Another beautiful Agave with bicolor leaves beautified by red spines.
Agave nicklesiae, King Ferdinand
Somewhat similar to Agave victoria reginae but with different style and formation of leaves.
A variegated variety closely resembling Agave filifera.
Agave Blue Glow variegated
Pretty rare plant – Also known as Sun Glow, this beautiful plant is a variegated form of Agave Blue Glow.
Agave desmettiana ‘Joe Hoak’
A nice plant for landscaping/ xeriscaping – fast growing and easy to maintain.
Agave guiengola ‘Creme Brulee’
A clump of Agave guiengola ‘Creme Brulee’. A delicate yet fast growing plant. Good for containers.
Agave manfreda x Bloodspot
Unique and attractive, it is believes to be a cross of Manfreda and Agave, that is why it is also described as Mangave.
Agave victoriae reginae ‘Kazo Bana’
Another beautiful variety of Agave victoria reginae. ‘Kazo Bana‘ is quite rare and elegant plant.
Agave lophantha ‘Quardicolor’
As the name suggests, this is a colorful and beautiful plant. Ideal for both container gardening as well as landscaping.
Agave schidigera ‘Shira ito no Ohi’
The name – Shira ito no Ohi – is quite difficult to pronounce and so is the maintenance of the plant.
