More Flowering Agave Attenuata (Foxtail)

18 February 2013 No Comment

The last photos of an Agave Attenuata (Foxtail) I posted were from  Simi Valley, California. The following photos are from my home city of Melbourne Australia. Last year in Melbourne was an amazing year for these flowering succulents with many of these magnificent plants flowering.

These magnificent specimens are in Brunswick Melbourne.  Not only were two flowering simultaneously, each Agave had those multiple flower heads. I have never seen these multiple flower heads before. Have you?

And lastly, a close up of my Foxtail flowering. And yes it was worth the 15-20 tear for the flower spike! From start to finish the flower bought beauty into our lives for seven months.
