Flowering of Agave nickelsiae

Walker, Colin C. (2018). Flowering of Agave nickelsiae. CactusWorld, 36(4) pp. 290–291.


The flowering of Agave nickelsiae was observed at the Glasgow Botanic Gardens. This inflorescence was estimated to be 4.5m tall. Consequently inflorescence size is a significant difference between this species and the closely related Agave victoriae-reginae which has shorter flower spikes (1.5-4.3m).
