Solitary (or nearly so) Agave species

A while back I was asked if I had a list of agave species that are solitary or nearly so. I have called on my friends at agaveville.org to help develop such a list which is presented here. The main criterion being that the species should be solitary or nearly so in habitat since cultivation can cause some wackiness in the plants. Also, only species from Continental North America, so the Caribbean and South American ones are out and no hybrids allowed.

  3. Agave atrovirens
  4. Agave aurea subsp. aurea
