This Wednesday's vignette features a large Agave ovatiolia just a few blocks from my house. I throw a glance at it whenever I drive by, but finally had a chance to look at it up-close and personal the other night, when walking to dinner. I originally thought the smaller plant was another A. ovatifolia, but now I'm not so sure.
Post-winter the large plant has the same spots my big A. ovatifolia have, and overall it's quite healthy, despite growing on the north side of a tall home (see the post I wrote about discovering these Agaves here). I think the biggest problem is the mulch collecting in the bottom of the leaves and around the crown. People...don't mulch the plants!
