These pictures are of an Agave filifera clone I have had for about 25 years in several gardens
and over that time the original one flowered, and now one of the oldest offsets has too.
They are about 10-15 years old when they flower and grow as fast as six inches a day at times.
I would be interested in hearing from anyone who can positively name this species, since
I was told there are possibly two botanical forms of A. filifera.
One form is solitary and produces no offsets, and has a flower stem about 5m (15-18') tall,
and this form produces many offsets and also produces a single stem, but to only about 4m.
Please email email@example.com if you can help with information.
