A trio of Agave vignettes to illustrate just how redemptive a hot summer can be.
When I visited Blooming Junction Nursery last April I quickly filed report on the Agave destruction (here). While it was sad to see, I was still thrilled they'd pushed the envelope and experimented. How else do we learn?
While most of the mushy Agaves had been already pulled when I visited that April day they'd left the A. ovatifolia in place, and amazingly they've all grown out of it — with lots of glorious healthy new foliage. These photos were taken last Saturday, September 16th, and the smoke from our wildfires had returned, hence the hazy air and off coloration.
Agave ovatifolia, for the win!
