Now in the Asparagus Family near you!

Photo by Carol Tornow
There are three species of agave found in Sabino Canyon (and two more plants in the Asparagaceae family, but I'll save those for another day). Shindaggers (Agave schottii); Desert Spoon aka Sotol (Dasylirion wheeleri), and Golden-flowered Agave aka Century Plant (Agave chrysantha). Take a look at the links and we'll make this a photo quiz. Answer in tomorrow's post.
