Agaves 101- 10 a.m.
Greg Starr, owner of Starr Nursery, pairs pretty pictures with informative comparisons to help the plant lovers better understand this vast and ever-changing genus. The presentation begins with the basics of Agave taxonomy, nomenclature, and classification. Then, using pictures of plants in habitat, Greg compares the two subgenera, Littaea and Agave. He shows how the plants differ and how some characteristics such as flower stalks and offsetting vs. solitary are similar among species.Sign up for this class
