but it has no hairs on it. And I thought that all filifera had hairs. This looks a lot like the one posted below which it was suggested that it could be an A. nickelsiae x A. lechuguilla. It is shorter and the leaves are a little different but also very sturdy and the color is similar. This one has a baby growing (pic 2), how exciting.. Any thoughts on what it is? Thanks in advance.

This may be the hybrid I mentioned in the other thread... No marginal spines suggests a 'Sharkskin' type hybrid...

Thanks again GermanStar, I will research that. I have an Agave 'x Sharkskin Shoes' and an Agave 'Sharkskin'. You are a gem. And some day I hope to see in person that lovely landscaped yard of yours even though I have no idea where Fountain Hills is.. :) Xuling
