Agave potatorum v verschaffeltii
Agave potatorum v verschaffeltii
Agaves come from the central parts of the Americas, from Southern USA, through Mexico and into the northern parts of South America. Many of them form huge impressive plants, but with their large size and dangerous points on the leaf tips these tend to be unsuitable for most greenhouses. Nevertheless, there are sufficient smaller growing species to ensure Agaves are well represented in cultivation. Agave potatorum v verschaffeltii is one of the Mexican species.

The photograph was taken at the BCSS Zone One Show at the National Garden Festival, Gateshead 1990.
