Agave

 

There are several hundreds species of Agave. They have been popular in many Mediterranean gardens in Europe since they were brought back from the Americas by the Spaniards and Portugueses in the 17th century, and before that they were cultivated for centuries by the native American population for fibers, food and drinks.

Nowadays they are very useful plants in desert gardens. If your climate is warm enough, you will most certainly find several species for your garden that will be very tough, will thrive with much additional water, and will be a source of enjoyment for many years.

Agaves are succulent rosettes, often clumping, occasionally on short trunks. They generally have a sharp spine at the end of their leaves, and for this reason should be away from paths. Each rosette blooms after many years (generally at least 8). The blooming rosette uses all its energy to produce the giant towering bloom, and seeds. When it has finished blooming, in almost all the species, the rosette dries out. Some species produce a large quantity of new plants on the flower stem (bulbils). These can be detached and planted.
