Flower of the Day – Agave

***

This large agave plant has a sage green color, with many fleshy petals with spiky edges. The photo was taken by my daughter when they visited the local arboretum.

  1. See lots of this type of plants. We live in a desert. Not my favorite of plants, but some are very pretty. Don’t want to touch many of them. Ouch.

    Have a fabulous day, Barbara. ♥

    • Thanks, Sandee! Definitely don’t want to get too close to them, or many other desert plants. They all have a way to protect themselves! We see lots of these around here, too.
      Hope you’re having a great mid-week Wednesday! ❤

  2. I saw Agave plants this summer and they were gigantic. The leaves get long and broad. I don’t remember but it seems the spikes are not as pointy as aloes.
    I’m having some good luck with my aloe plants, so maybe I should try Agave?? They look so good.
    Have a great start to the weekend and take care!

    • They can get really big out in the yards! Maybe you could find one at a nursery to get started on growing them. Glad you aloe plants are doing good.
      Wishing you a lovely weekend, too! ❤

      • They can get very large! It would be nice to have many of them in a yard, a very big yard.
        I have several aloe plants that are doing well. But the tall one that I transplanted started looking droopy and mushy lately and discovered that it didn’t root. The whole purpose was to give it more space and bleh…I accidentally led it to its demise.
        Now I know, after the fact.
        Have a great Thursday and take care. 🙂

      • All we can do is try with the plants. I don’t have a green thumb at all, so it’s hit or miss if they last very long, even a little house plant.
        Hope your other aloes do well.
        Wishing you a lovely Thursday, too. 🙂
