Agave nizandensis

6th February 2008

I love this little suckering plant with broad leaves. It is sharp clingy spines along the edges, and as Agave go I think it is rather wonderful. Unfortunately, it is not Agave nizandensis, but why let the facts get in the way of a good plant!

I originally bought the plant in 1994 and the source has since lost it, so it was a pleasure to be able to return a piece, wrongly named or not. This plant actually belongs in the A. lophantha - A. univittata species complex. Wide leaved and reasonably hardy it is a good small plant and will remain here under the wrong name until it is evicted by the real thing!
