Article: Introduction to Agaves
effjayy101 Bowie, MD Read your articles on agaves and palms. WONDERFUL! I hope you can suggest where I should go to get the botanical names for my plants. I have the following:
A Ragged (Torn) Leaf Palm
Hardy Blue Fan Palm
Thank you in advance for your interest.
palmbob Tarzana, CA (Zone 9b) Pony tail palm is Beaucarnea recurvata (not a palm)
But I have no clue what a RAgged leaf palm is (never heard of that common name).
Hardy Blue Fan Palm is probably Brahea armata, but could also be Chamaerops humilis var cerifera, or Nannorrhops.
There are dozens of Dwarf Agaves, so no idea which that one would be
And 'regular' AGave- who knows... what a weird name!
