Yesterday I shared my overview of the entire Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, today we return to the Agave Garden for some close-ups.
Agave parrasana (Cabbage Head Agave), happy in a pot.
This was the second, of the pair in pots, by the ramada (top image), I'm assuming this too is an Agave parrasana.
Beautiful in its death.
Agave nickelsiae, aka Agave ferdinandi-regis.
Agave sisalana in the foreground.
Agave shawii ssp. goldmaniana (the large green one in the center)
The bloom of the one on the left (above), perhaps also an A. shawii ssp. goldmaniana.
Love this planting...
Agave colorata, I think (?), in the foreground.
I couldn't find a label on this blooming beauty. I wonder if its celadon-ish coloring is because it's poured its life-force into blooming?
It's a lovely color.
Agave murpheyi 'Rodney'
I do love this Agave, I've had two friends share pups of their plants with me, neither one made it.
Agave bracteosa and A. potatorum
Agave vilmoriniana babies!
I would really love for someone to come into my garden and build one of these naturalistic Agave planters. Please...
Agave vilmoriniana x pelona (the wavy guy)
Agave medio-picta 'Alba' (the white stripe) wraps up our look at the Agave garden at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. I do hope to return someday when it's maybe cooled down to the 90's and my head isn't throbbing...
