When I click the photo, it has a tag - Artichoke Agave (Agave parryi var. truncata). Is that the wrong one? Or did it get named while I wasn't looking?

Looks like a really skinny dragon tree (?)



And I see 4 foxtail agaves



And as Daisy pointed out, part of the wall is currently labeled A. parryi truncata.

@DaisyI, that tag was the only one I was sure of.

Oh, got it. Landscape photo. You want to name all the other plants in the photo. D'Oh!

Yes, Daisy. I am very intrigued by the mounding plants. I googled all kinds of word combinations but nothing so far. They must be desert plants but the closest thing I got from a "mounding needle-like leafed desert plant" was a bunch of photos of yuccas with much wider leaves.

@Baja_Costero, the trunk does look similar but the one in the photo I took doesn't have any branches. Should I go ahead and tag it as a Dracaena draco?

Which one is the "mounding needle-like leafed desert plant" from left to right? I see needle leaf and I see mounding but not the same plant. Confused

Rolling on the floor laughing Sorry, Daisy, I really didn't mean to confuse you. I'm being a bit daft, I guess. I call "mounding" anything that has a roundish shape and it's not a groundcover so those needle leaf ones, a larger one in the foreground and a smaller one to the right of the tallest plant would be the "mounding" ones. 😁

I think the plant farthest to the left could be one of the Dasylirion.

The problem is that you don't know how mature this plant is (maybe you do but haven't shared that). I can see it being either a Yucca or an Agave.

It looks like it has multiple growth centers to me. They only branch after they flower. This plant probably flowered last year. It does look like a dragon tree to me.

I was thinking the far left might be Dasylirion, but it doesn't look like the leaves are wide enough or saw toothed. Could it be Agave geminiflora?

@Baja_Costero, okay, I tagged as such.

@DaisyI, no idea how old those plants are.

@BlueOddish and @plantmanager, the leaves aren't toothed.

If that's a Dasylirion longissimum, it doesn't look anything like the plant in the foreground of the landscape photo, which may just be a Festuca glauca.

However, the plant to the right of the Dracaena drago may be a young DL as it does have three separate clumps of needle leaves.

I don't know if it is Dasylirion longissimum. But it was the only multi-headed plant out there (so of course, the only one I took a photo of) - all the rest were singles sitting on stems. That was why I asked you about maturity as the babies look exactly like your plant on the left. The plant in my photo had smooth edged leaves.
