Plant Highlight: Agave flexispina
 

The flower stalk of Agave flexispina is on the slender side for an Agave, and in habitat it reaches a height of 8 to 12 feet (2.5 to 3.5 m). At the Ruth Bancroft Garden, our largest specimen exceeded this, topping out at 20 feet (6 m). The stalk may be straight or else just a little sinuous in the upper half. The upper portion of the stalk has relatively short branches, each ending in a cluster of flowers.
