agave

One of my other favorite cacti were the Agaves. I don't know the name of their varieties, but this one was a pretty blue-green with faint horizontal stripes on the leaves, and tiny spines on their margins.

These two pups were growing near the big one pictured above.
There was another plant with small, dark low-growing leaves hardly noticeable because the bright red flowers carried above them so attractive.
