Absolutely cool to post it here - there are quite a few people here with a good eye for ID'ing plants.
Love those dichotomas, I had two that I grew to about 3-4 ft tall from tiny little 4" seedlings, I lost the last one during my move... While I successfully moved a good number of large Agaves and Cacti, for most of my Aloes the 3 mile move (directly north, but somehow I ended up in Tempe after being in Mesa - I am at Broadway and the 101) essentially meant a total reset (but I am repeating myself).
I think if you had to neglect your plants for a summer this last one was an ideal one, we have not had that active of a monsoon season with the added benefit or more rain and 'cooler' temperatures in many years - I moved here in late 2006 so my first summer was 2007 and it felt a lot like that this year, though we had more rain going into the fall, which seems to not be the case this year, but after '19 and '20 any year with a good amount of rain is a winner in my book.
I have a small africana planted in along the north edge of my back patio. It is about a foot tall I'd say, so it has a ways to go, but it did well this year. I also came back from the DBG plant sale with a $8 africana hybrid that already has a 1.5' trunk, but it is about of a trailing trunk - so I wonder what the other plant in the parentage was. Sabaea (sp.?) and Helenae also did well there this summer, even a tongaensis seedling did not complain too much. I recently saw a post over on Agaveville from someone in Cave Creek with a large Agave tongaensis in his front yard (under a shade tree), which gives me optimism that I will be able to grow mine here successfully.
I picked up a reasonably sized Agave 'Hercules' to replace the one I left behind from someone in Apache Junction who had a large supply of those and a bunch of others in the winter of 19-20 and that is now going on 6' tall after a really good summer of growth.
Here is a picture of my east facing side yard, the block wall is about 6ft tall. Clearly. I have some weeding to do:
In the foreground at the base of the Hercules an Aloe that came to me as a 'salmon-pink' Aloe vera, so what people would want to say is a hybrid of something with Aloe vera, except that Aloe vera is pretty much sterile - I have had one seed pod in many years of lots of flowers on good sized clump of Aloe vera - and nothing came of those seeds (which could of course me because of me not the seeds), but it has been getting larger and has remained solitary (which would actually agree with the original description of Aloe vera) and aside from color the inflorescence looks the same, but it is now going on 50% larger than the 'true' Aloe vera that is not in the picture, which like most Aloe vera here is a clone that clumps easily and a lot.
There is space in that side yard for more Aloes, but right now there are mostly Agaves planted, just because they were of a size that needed to see ground. The large plant in the back is Agave mapisaga var. Lisa, which is going to be way too big for that spot, but it was the only spot with enough shade that I had... it may have to move some time soon...
