Agave striata

An agave with a rosette of rigid, erect to arching gray-green leaves 10-24 inches long which have no marginal teeth but a single robust terminal spine. The flower spike is a cylindrical cluster of yellow-green, red or purple flowers on a 5-10 foot stalk.  This agave is a waterwise plant and excellent for the xeric landscape.  Photo by Laurel Woodley
