Those last two in the newspaper are especially beautiful!
Its probably to late, but be really careful potting up the A. funkiana. Whimpiest agave ever!
Whats the large agave on the table A. gypsophylla?
I think the newspaper adds an extra something special, don't you?
The big blue Agave is a hybrid called Agave 'Blue Wave' (from Plant Delights, it may also be available at Yucca Do). I think it is totally cool. I got it to go with an A. protoamericana 'Pokey Ghost' in a new agave bed with mostly blue and silver species. The Pokey Ghost will get much bigger than the Blue Wave, but for now it has some catching up to do. It will look funny in the back of a bed with bigger (for now) plants in front, but I sure don't want to have to move it if it gets too big in the wrong place too fast!
I also bought a rather large and expensive (I'm too old to wait for it to grow) Dioscorea elaphantipes from Terrapin Gardens (up in the North West somewhere). The owner was especially nice and sent a second plant for free. He says these plants grow better if there is another one nearby. Sounds strange to me, but I'm not arguing with it. I thought it was incredibly nice!
Plant people can be very good people!
