Agave is a genus of monocots native to the hot and arid regions of Mexico and the Southwestern United States. Some agave species are also native to tropical areas of South America. The plants are perennial, but each rosette flowers once and then dies. Some of the products you may know that come from Agaves include Agave Nectar ( a sweetener) and Tequila. This variety is Agave ‘Blue Flame’ photographed at the Huntington botanical gardens in Pasadena.
