A Spiny Beauty: Agave angustifolia marginata

Agave angustifolia variety marginata, the Carribean Agave, growing in that mini-botanical garden that I call the back yard. These are excellent growers in a moderate climate, quickly forming pups. They make great accent plants, if a little spiny. They are drought tolerant but can also tolerate wet feet without rotting. They also appear to be fairly cold resistant, as long as you stay above freezing.
