It's a little Dr. Seussian looking with mostly bare branches with blooms at the ends but they're still pretty.
Not to mention the wonderful fragrance!
The other day, I stopped by Windmill Nursery because I was in the area and was delighted to find that all plants are on sale for 40% off. Later in the year the discounts go even lower but I couldn't resist this trio of Agave paryii var. truncata. Here they are potted up and ready to go out on the front steps once the scaffolding comes down. (The garden assistant is painting the house - more on that in another post.) They're hardy to zone 7 and I added a lot of perlite to the soil and they're in terra cotta pots so I'm thinking of leaving them outside this winter. Do you think they'll make it in the rain or should I bring them back up to the covered porch for the winter?
