Agave geminiflora (Twin Flower Agave)
Agave geminiflora (Twin Flower Agave)

A dramatic plant which blooms yellow flowers with a hint of red. This Mexican native is a natural for the desert garden or the modern architectural landscape. The symmetrical, nearly stem less rosette, smaller size, fine texture, and resistance to pests make this a first class landscape plant. It thrives in full sun, even in low desert, but will do equally well in shade. Adequate water ensures a dense symmetrical form and optimal colour. Whether in modernistic or naturalistic landscapes, few plants rival its uniformity of size and widespread adaptability.
