Many years ago Terry Jones gave me a plant of Ochagavia lindleyana, which was a fantastic
long leaved silver spiny bromeliad that was hardy here in a sunny position.
Eventually I lost it when surrounding vegetation overgrew it - I kept meaning to rescue it , but when I finally got there it was dead.
At the same time, Kew had it labelled as Ochagavia carnea, so I bought this to replace it , but it seems to be a different plant.
Long boring story, nice plant anyway! Compact heads of pink flowers.
Another one that was caught in the snow shower in April, but which has shrugged it off.
After many years sitting around in a pot it has finally found a home in the Agave house.
I should have split a rosette from it before it was planted because I don't fancy
wrestling with it as it gets larger.
