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.
