ARIZONA AGAVES
The majority of the Agaves that I grow are the Agaves that appeal to me. For some its the spines that I find so attractive. Or the color of the
leaves. And many are just all around gorgeous! But mainly I like to grow multiples of the same species that are from different locations. Its the
diversity that so appeals to me. Agave palmeri is well known for this and it is one of my favorite Agaves.
