One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Agave (filifers ssp?) schidigera 'Shira ito no Ohi'
This Japanese selection of a north American native is a beautiful little plant. Brad tells me though, that it stays small. That would make it a good candidate for a mixed container but maybe not so good for the Florida garden. Maybe I could chip out a hole in a rock and plant it a couple feet in the air? My eyes just can't appreciate it 5 feet away (down).
