Agave salmiana var. ferox
23rd June 2011
A large growing species with broad leaves that is a striking feature of the seafront in Falmouth and other coastal towns
in the extreme south-west. I am hoping that if I keep it dry in the greenhouse it will prosper in the ground
but I am going to wait for it to grow a bit before I try.

Here is my baby-monster in the Agave house. Every year it gets appreciably bigger and butcher. Love it but don't cuddle it.
Even weeding around it is becoming quite a worry. I would like to try it outside, but this one is going nowhere.
