For our agave collectors, here’s a new drool-worthy introduction…a variegated edge sport of Agave geminiflora, called ‘Leaping Lizards’. This is an amazing opportunity to obtain a truly rare specimen…as long as they last. While Agave geminiflora isn’t terribly winter hardy, these do make amazing container specimens. Agave ‘Leaping Lizards’ is a solitary specimen (no offsets), unless you behead the original specimen for the sake of propagation, as was done here.
Sure looks an awful lot like a Carex to me!
Agave gemniflora, this is really amazing.
Thanks for giving me this information
I collected A. geminiflora in Mexico in the early 70’s.. my plants have been growing outside in northern calif. since then, and have withstood temps as low as 18 degrees without visible damage. I consider them to be quite hardy
Lucky you. For us, Agave geminiflora dies when our winter temps drop below 12 F.
