Adenophora jasinifolia

Adenophora jasinifolia

Got this from seed, and can find basically no information about it, other than it is from Sichun China from quite high elevation (4500 meters) and, well, it is an adenophora, so it has got to be lovely. If you want to grow something that is apparently new to cultivation, at least in the US, give this a try.

Adenophora stenantina

Adenophora stenantina

From seed collected in Nothern Qinghai China at 3600 meters elevation, another new-to-us adenophora about which I can find virtually no information. But, given it is a adenophora, you can bet on lovely lavender-blue flowers, and almost certainly an easy-going disposition.

Agastache foeniculum 'Aureum' (Golden Jubilee)

Agastache foeniculum 'Aureum' (Golden Jubilee)

Agastache don't usually do much for me, but this one I rather like. Broad, fragrant, bright chartreuse leaves that contrast very nicely with the big dense spikes of purple flowers in the summer. This plant is native to most of the northern half of the US, and is an excellent nectar source for a lot of butterflies. In my experience, very drought tolerant once established because it produces a deep root system, but in containers or when newly planted, inclined to wilt at the drop of a hat. I'll also note, this seems to be exactly the same plant as what is now being marketed as 'Golden Jubilee' Zone 5, probably much colder.

Agave bracteosa 'Monterrey Frost'

Agave bracteosa 'Monterrey Frost'

An agave that looks like a yucca... sorta. Narrow, lance-shaped leaves devoid of the usual agave vicious claws and spikes, with rather dramatic broad white margins. Apparently best in part shade to keep the white edge from burning... all in all, not what you expect from an agave. Zone 8

Agave geminiflora 'Spagheti Strap'

Agave geminiflora 'Spagheti Strap'

One of those looks-nothing-like-an-agave agaves... My first guess on seeing it was juncus. The leaves are long skinny noodles that arch from the plant like... like I don't know what. Like long skinny noodles, I guess? It is pretty cool looking. Totally tender zone 9 but like all agaves super easy to over winter indoors if you keep it dry, cool, and give it a little light. Eventually gets two feet tall and around. Not spiny at all, which is a plus when it comes to agaves.

Agave gentry 'Jaws'

Agave gentry 'Jaws'

A dark green agave so thick and rubbery that it almost looks fake, with dramatic teeth on the leaf margins that give it its name. Spectacular when combined with ominous music and sprinkled half-hidden in the garden where it can consume unsuspecting visitors. Not even close to hardy for us, but like all agaves, incredibly easy to overwinter. Just bring it inside, give it a little light, and stop watering until spring. You get a wonderful, sculptural houseplant for the winter, and your kids will finally learn to stop rough housing when they get accidentally impaled on one of the spikes.

Agave havardiana

Agave havardiana

A big, beefy, blue agave reaching, when happy, a good three feet in diameter, and then eventually firing off a massive telephone pole of a flowering spike for one giant, lethal, orgy of sexual reproduction. One of the hardiest species, it can take Western zone 5 winters, though our soggy Michigan winters are pretty much certain death. Might survive if planted under and overhanging eve of the house to keep the rain off.

Agave parryi parryi

Agave parryi parryi

Agave parryi parryi Parry's agave or mescal agave is a slow-growing agave native to Arizona, New Mexico, and northern Mexico. The leaves are grey green and have a spine at the tip. One of the distinguishing features is that the point on the tip, which is typically dark tan, brown, or black, is darker than the leaf. The rosette grows as large as 1 to 2 feet in diameter. Parry's Agave is evergreen. Mature plants produce a twelve-foot stalk with bright yellow blooms. They are monocarpic
