A large proportion of gardens these days have poor light conditions so not surprisingly, shade loving plants are increasingly sought after. Ferns are an obvious choice for a low light level situation. With a vast array of shapes, sizes and growing requirements there are ferns out there to suit all tastes and pockets. A complete layered canopy can be achieved using a variety of Tree Ferns for the main structure. Coming down with some of the larger varieties of male ferns for the midrange. Western Maidenhair, Hartstongue and Lady Fern all blend seamlessly to the floor. Many varieties of ivy exist and give year round body and compliment this style of the garden well.
Agaves are a diverse genus of over 200 species of rosette, spear-like, leafed evergreen perennials. Agave typically grows as low shrub-like plants in dry or well-drained soils of the Southern part of the U.S. from New Jersey down to Florida, and then West to California. Many Agave species, such as Agave americana or Agave tequilana, have sharp recurved, protective teeth running along both sides of the blade of its semi-curved, lance-shaped leaves, with a sharp needle-tip lance at the end. There are Agave species, like Agave attenuata, and Agave stricta, that do not have sharp-teeth at all, but are smooth. The color variations of Agave plants range from shades of green, to silvery-grey, bluish-green, top yellow or white stripes, such is the case with Agave americana 'media-picta'. The bloom of mother Agave plants are a beautiful array of pendulent bell-shaped, creamy-white flowers soaring high above the mother plant on a flower stem that may reach 20 feet or more for some agave species. The bloom period of a mother Agave plant is during the summer and the flower stalk is magnificent to behold, however, this event means the cycle of life ends for mother Agave and begins again for her Agave offspring. Agave plants are an excellent choice for rock gardens or well drained soils that lend themselves well to terracotta or cement planters. Agaves are fairly slow glowers so expect higher prices on these sunloving garden jewels at retail garden centers. Huge specimen agaves can be quickly delivered by semi-trucks.
It is fairly easy to recognize these plants once you know what to look for. Being able to identify them can help you to avoid a painful rash.
