Frosty Friday.

A very frosty agave bracteosa, one the hardiest for the UK but strangely underrated.  This one has been planted out for three years now and despite the last few very bad winters it has not even been marked.  If only more agaves coped as ell as this from such a small size.


  1. What a beautiful specimen and a lovely pic.
    It's warming up now thank goodness, though the frost is very pretty it is nice not to have 4 jumpers and heatwarmer pad strapped to my tummy

  2. It would be fine in your garden unprotected, IF you do decide to do your little rock garden ill fit in perfectly and it has no spines so can be brushed against without worrying!
