Very attractive collection of Agave photos and an informative article. I found it interesting even tho this is one succulent I avoid due to my thorn aversion. Thank you.

Thank you, pb! That is fascinating! I love the perfect symmetry of some of the plants. My favorites were ones you indicated were high dollar. Wonder why that is...

You can look up Succulents/cacti in the Garden watchdog... there are a LOT of Agave sources on line. I personally recommend Aridlands.
