detailed seed-starting info below

Species sometimes considered synonymous with A. lophantha, but our seed-grown plants should be quite different from the fancier varieties of that species. From what I can tell, a fairly typical agave, with spiny green leaves (often with a lighter-colored midrib) and greenish flowers when it finally decides to bloom.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: left fence nursery area
