Agaves and Aloes at the South Coast Botanic Garden - Miss Smarty Plants
Agaves and aloesÂ are two of the toughest groups of plants for a dry garden. In CaliforniaÂ agaves and aloes are becoming increasinglyÂ essential as water supplies are limited and plants and landscapes need to be more drought tolerant.Â
Century Plant, Agave americana : mine is not nearly this big and is only about 5 years old. it stabs me a lot with its needle sharp/hard spine at the end of each leaf and reminds me to be more careful around smaller more delicate plants that sit close to it.
