name these two.
The second one looks like Agave harvardiana or at least an Agave sp. from subgenus the Agave.
The first one looks like a new world Dasylirion or Agave sp from subgenus Littaea. I have a vague memory that says I may even be in the wrong family?
Simon - You are definitely on the right track...
First one...Agave attenuata
Second one....Agave americana
No, but keep trying.
A. deserti on the right?
Desert Agave ?
Lovely photo and composition. Your Agaves have multiple florettes per stem. Want an additional clue/photo?
A. lechuguilla and A. chrysantha?
I will add another photo this evening to help.
Agave vilmoriniana, can't see the one behind tho'.
A cigar is in order!!! :) Well done.
The second is Agave desmetiana 'Variegata'.
If those things are both classified in Agave, I'd say it is high time the genus was reviewed and split into two or more separate genera!
