Plant Highlight: Agave schidigera
 

Some species of Agave are very localized, while others occur over a wide area. One of the latter is Agave schidigera, native to a large part of western and central Mexico. The flowering stalk of Agave schidigera has no branches, so the hundreds of flowers are arrayed along the stalk itself, opening first at the bottom and then progressing upward. The stalk height can vary from 8 feet to 15 feet, and ours is near the upper limit of this.
