That's an Agave attenuate. They are so beautiful. I once pulled off the seeds from that stalk and tried to grow one in baja but they never germinated.

Thanks for the ID. Agaves are one of my favourites. Must in the perfect spot to be such a happy plant!

And thanks to you, Blanca for sharing the beauty around you.

Starting south on Halloween, BOO!

That is a very cool plant. Does anyone know how long it takes to grow like that?

Blanca is a beauty! We would have all been so lucky to have an angel guiding our path.

Nuff said.

awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww Woody! How very kind of you.


I have no idea how long it takes the attenuate to grow that big, but I saw one in a cactus nursery in Matlock, in the northern part of England and way back when, my sister gave me one and it also bloomed like this.

I didn't get a shot of that plant but I did of other beauties at the British nursery:
