Seedling Mix! When growing seed collected from open pollinated Dyckia, you never know what you will get. The colors of the leaves vary; the leaf shape, length and width varies; and the amount and arrangement of the... More
We were at the home of Sr. Roberto Kautsky when he gave us seed of this Bromeliad. He said it was very rare in the wild and we were honored that he gave us the seed. The margins of long and slender st... More
Giant Aechmea! The largest growing hardy bromeliad you can grow in the deep south. The light green leaves are heavily armed and outreaching, so plant away from the garden path but in view of a window where on cold w... More
In spring when this little cutie is in bloom we have to hide it from visitors to the nursery. The combination of the sky-blue flowers (that to us look like beady little crab eyes) set against hot-pink... More
The papa bear! If aechmeas were the three bears. This is the big one with a large, showy flower spike belted in red bracts from which purple flowers emerge. This spike arches above the foliage and is produced in mid... More
Agave variegate! This little plant has to be one of the coolest agave variegates for pot culture. The compact size, fantastic color, and beautiful form make this plant a knockout in the succulent collection. One can't... More
Crystal bowl agave! We originally made this selection of Agave montana in 1997 on one of our trips to Mexico. We have grown it for many years and have been impressed with it all along. But it offsets slowly, making it im... More
Silver Surfer Agave! Tony Avent of Plant Delights Nursery made this fine Agave selection out of a batch of seedlings he grew from seed we sent him years ago. This plant grows in form much like many A. americana var. ameri... More
Hardy with great form! This variety does not attain the mammoth proportions of the cultivated Agave americana that punctuates the Mediterranean climes. Instead, it has an upright compact form that has proven to be very desi... More
White stripes! Its succulent narrow leaves are boldly striped in white variegation along the leaf margins. A compact leafy plant that never fails to attract everyone's admiration. Grown around the world as an orname... More
Fox-tail Agave! Soft, luscious, voluptuous are all adjectives that come to mind when describing this handsome succulent. This un-agave-like plant has soft, glaucous, spineless leaves that unfold creating a beautiful ... More
Recalling calamar! Pat McNeal chose this non-clumping form to be the first of the Agave bracteosa's to be tissue cultured. The cultivar name 'Calamar' implies a form more marine-like than plant-like. In its native habit... More
Variegated Agave celsii When I first saw this variegate at a nursery in Thailand, I was not certain what species it was. It was so stunning, that I temporarily drew an identification blank. When someone told me it was A. cel... More
Chiapas Agave! This relative of Agave celsii from the state of Chiapas, MX is superficially similar in appearance to it, but the leaves tend to be broader and stouter. The teeth on the margins of the leaves are also... More
Another Soap Agave! According to Gentry’s “Agaves of Continental North America”, Agave chrysoglossa is closely related to Agave vilmoriniana but the leaves are flatter and straighter and the inflorescence is non-bu... More
- An attractive plant with long, narrow leaves and long filifers that form a single rosette. Found just above the Pacific coastline in places with high-tide salt spray. As the name suggests, it is nativ... More
Sotol maguey! This plant probably represents the oldest living relic of the agave clan - clinging to outcroppings of volanic rock in a climate that is mild and moist year around you begin to see that this not your ... More
Golden highlights! A highly ornamental form that is variegated in creamy yellow bands along the leaf margins. The variegation is especially effective on this plant because of its cultural need for a shady area--accentin... More
This plant is a member of the Marginatae Group of Agaves, which also includes species like A. lophantha, A lechuguilla, A. funkiana and A. xylonacantha. I mention its familial relatives so that people... More
Durango Agave! This moderate to large growing Agave is found at moderate elevations (5500' to 8500') on open rocky slopes in the high grasslands of Durango and Zacatecas, MX. It has broad, silver leaves, which have ... More
King of the agaves! As a race of agaves these are almost inseparable to botanists from Agave victoriae-reginae, but to us gardeners they are quite distinct. We list them as a separate species. They have fewer but larger,... More
Attractive pot specimen! Agave filifera and Agave schidigera are two very similar looking species that have always been difficult for an average collector to tell apart. The feature that has normally been used to separate the... More
In the late 1990's when John Fairey and I were making regular treks into Mexico, I spotted this heavily armed selection in a huge colony of Agave gentryi. It made a treacherous groundcover under the o... More
