This is one of three succulents that Jennifer Schaffer put in when she did our landscaping.  They are agave celsii and they are, sadly, monocarpic (die after flowering once).  
We're looking forward though to seeing what the flower looks like.  It's sort of creepy - I left town for 2 days, nothing; when I pulled up in the driveway, the shoot was suddenly there: at least 3 ft tall.


  1. I can't wait. My Spanish Dagger is blooming right now. They grow up so fast, don't they.

  2. Agave celsii is native to Mexico. Suitable for xeriscaping. They look good but be careful plant has spines or sharp edges; use extreme caution when handling.
