That's a very nice form, well grown too. These are beauties if you manage to keep them from being swallowed up in their own pups. I've learned the hard way!

You’re right. They pup with gay abandon! Surprising to me that they’re rarely seen for sale (at least around here)

This plant took 2 years to get that form back after I planted it in a shadier spot and “went splat” with splayed out leaves. The leaves burned badly when I moved it up onto a full sun terrace as shown, even here on the coast. So yeah... finally it looks good!

Reference first photo in the thread....

I haven't seen an Agave aesthetically better placed. Simply breathtaking........ I have many natural rocks in my hill top house so have lot of places to implement this idea. Thanks Jkwinston :U
