agave ferdinand regis at The Ruth Bancroft Garden.
DSC_1128 ~ November 2008 Agave cultivar Royal Spine is a hybrid of Agave victoriae-reginae subspecies ferdinandi-regis. This is a small to medium sized agave with extremely stiff, sharp leaves. Photograph, landscape design and installation by Michael Buckner, The Plant Man.
Agave attenuata with Thunbergia alata.This Agave with its flaccid leaves is not hardy like some of the others such as Agave americana and A. parryi. However the sight of a good clump of them in full flower with their swan-like flowering spikes is something to behold!
