Plant with giant pointed leaf

Postby heli » Wed Feb 05, 2014 5:00 am

I have these two plants near the swimming pool. I wonder what they are called? I have cut them off, leaving behind some smaller plants near the roots, I hope I did the right thing.

Agave attenuata, heli. The pieces you cut off can be replanted (with some stem underground for support) and will re root.
