They were small when planted

and now this bed is filling up and the flowers are blooming. There are so many blooms in all the beds, some from plants for the first time, that I can hardly keep up with them in taking photos. Will post them hopefully soon. Xuling

Beautiful! I have all this new space to fill and this is inspiring. I love the round symmetrical agaves!

Thanks for all the nice comments. Somehow it all just fell into place on its own. I mean that I did the back breaking work but the plants told me what to order and then where to place them. xuling

Was the A. 'Kissho Kan' in that bed last winter, and if so, did you do anything special to nurse it through? I recall you had a pretty bad time last winter.

Yes it has been there several years as well as the A. potatorum Kichiokan Marginata and A. Tradewinds, outside exposed to the rain. The only thing that I do for the outdoor plants (I have no indoor plants, but do have a few potted plants which I move to the front porch during winter) is try to protect them from extreme cold weather. I have a large bedspread, bath sheets and many burlap blankets (which were burlap coffee bags I got empty, opened them up and then had them sewn into large blankets). What ever rain they get then they live or die by it. I can do nothing to protect them from the rain, or at least I refuse to do so. I lose a couple of big box purchases every year, but the nursery and on-line nursery plants survive very heartily. Xuling
