Agave lechuguilla

3rd July 2010

A widespread and wide spreading species from Mexico and southwest Texas, where it experiences significant cold during the winter. As it matures the leaves develop distinct kinks along their length. Over the years I have grown the same thing under the names A.poselgeri, A.univittata, A.lophantha, A.heteracantha and a number of combinations of the same. Those who name Agave inhabit a complex and unstable world.
