Big Agaves

geotect(7bNC)July 18, 2007

I was at the beach recently and noticed that many places were using large (>3') agaves or century plants in their landscaping. Does anyone know a reasonably priced source for such large plants? Thanks!

And I KNOW! I'm gonna get flamed for this.... easy please people that read this, they are for sale in AZ, larger ones are pricey that's one way to put it. As far as I know they are not endangered or regulated. If I am wrong I know I will be swiftly corrected here. I have been lurking for year's because of that. Flame me but please don't turn me over directly to the feds.

geotect they are in my yard and pup alot in winter... I am also not at That home now but will be then. Best time to uproot them anyway. Bad news is..... they are not light weights they are bulky and heavy we are not talking S.A.S.E. here.
1 to 1 1/2 footer's my 'pups'..... they grow bigger that 3 feet I can tell you. Send me an e-mail maybe we can make a trade.... find me live Ube, and I will pay the postage.
