Agave plants in Central Asia

Post by igor.glukhovtsev »

Since I promised Chad posting pics of my agave plants please enjoy seeing and I would appreciate very much hearing any ideas on ID the plants...

This is agave that I supposed looks like the Chad's one (A.potatorum?):

Image

Agave applanata?:

Image

Agave ferdinand-regis?:

Image

Agave multifilifera?:

Image

Agave geminiflora?:

Image

Have no idea. It might be A. utahensis var.eborispina but too frost tender:

Image

Selected agave plants:

I have a few more agave plants to be presented next weekend I hope

Here's to all the global warming pushers, may your winters be -30 below and four feet of snow in your driveway. Because I want you happy.

I don't know Aaron. All of them are too small to be identify a 100%.
I was thinking about utahensis too but this agave got a a frost damage at a temperature a bit lower 0 C.

Beauties, Igor, especially that first one.

Glad I'm not the only person who loses labels. :lol:

your Agaves look great Igor..............not sure with ID. The second Agave reminds me of A. parryi. The last one does look like A. utahensis v nevadensis to me too but it should be hardy down to at least -10C in your area. All Agaves are much less hardy in my climate than dry cold. The utahensis Agaves don't like my moisture.

Nice pics, Igor! Will you eventually plant some species in the ground?

Great looking agaves. Very nice Applanata you have there. How is the Utahensis doing? From the look of the above pic the damage is coming from to much water and not the cold at all.

Well... Chad, it is funny: our minus 16C this morning is a good chance talking about agaves :lol:

Since I have no enough room for overwintering the agaves. I have some which were left in my very bright 10-15 C temp library in my house. I put some into a deep cellar with a temperature 0 - minus 5 C. My 2 years parry seedlings are in unheated GH. And some small seedling are inside of a hole inside of unheated GH. Perhaps I need to take pictures of all these agaves in various places.
Too bad I still have no idea where I want to build a succulent bed for growing agaves-yucca plants outside.

It's been 70F all weekend here, but last 2 days we have had 3" of rain. I have been out taking photos in the rain today and will post later once they are all uploaded.

Nice Agaves Igor! The first one don't look like A. potatorum. It's too big for A. potatorum.
Here is my A. potatorum

Your A. utahensis v. eborispina is similar to mine
