    Beautiful! What is the name of the plants, with big pointed leaves. There's 3, or more ( background) in this pic. I want to order thru mail catalogue, but I don't know the name. I don't even see them in the garden centers, they're so beautiful.Thanks for the help!

    Beth - Those are Agave attenuata, called the Foxtail Agave for this reason:


    In our part of California, we seldom see it bloom - seems to require more consistent warmth. It is one of the soft-leafed species, with unarmed, soft leaves. Locally, where it is hardy, our biggest fear is a hail-storm, which can leave the leaves pitted and unattractive until they are replaced by new growth.

    Not sure where you are, but in mediterranean climates, this plant is a stalwart regular.
