Agave vilmoriniana & swimming pool - Venice Garden & Home Tour

Streamlined and minimal landscape design by Suzanne McKevitt. I've been seeing more of this unique Agave species around Los Angeles lately. The common name of this elegant species is Octopus Agave. Very striking when flowering. A native of Mexico, this architectural plant can tolerate intense heat and very dry conditions. Unlike most Agave, the leaves do not have spines, thus making this Agave a good choice in gardens with young children.
