Boldly colored. Drought-tolerant. With the wonderful world of succulents, you can mimic an underwater look with plants
Flanked by smaller agaves, A. parryi truncata appears to wait for prey to glide past. This powerhouse succulent (as large as 2 to 3 feet tall and 3 to 4 feet wide) and its smaller brethren are tough enough for desert gardens; plant them in full sun in all but the hottest climates. ‘Bloodspot’ mangaves drift in the agaves’ wake, adding their own edgy interest and dappled patterns to the sea-bed scene.
