Descrizione prodotto


At last we have a book written in English which looks at some of the best agaves, both species and cultivars, which can be grown in containers or outdoors in the ground where climate permits...As you are aware, agaves can change dramatically as they age and this guide takes that into account as it includes pictures showing each species from youth to maturity- a unique and valuable feature of the book and a great help with identification...I would thoroughly recommend this book to all cactus and succulent enthusiasts whether they are interested in agaves or not. --Literature Review (CactusWorld Vol. 30 (3))


Greg Starr is the owner of Starr Nursery, Arizona, that specializes in agaves, cacti and drought-tolerant shrubs.

5.0 su 5 stelle Expertly Written and Up-to-Date Reference 22 maggio 2012
Di R. Pontius - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
This long awaited tome fills a critical void in the literature on Agaves. The long out-of-print Agaves of Continental North America from 1982 is still the best reference for species identification, however if one wants cultural information, including the new cultivars (hybrids), then you need this book. Greg has taken his intimate knowledge of all things Agave and translated it to the written word in a highly readible fashion. The photographs are exceptionally well done and the choice of images for this book is worthy of praise. There is a bit of wit and wisdom that interplay throughout the text and this I find uplifting especially compared to some of the more recent generalist works that are as dry as the habitats the plant live in. So some so much that I would need my own xeric adapation to continue reading them. This book will be great for the Agavologist, as Greg call the people whom study agaves, for the new and old collector, the botanical curious and the diehard agave enthusiast. It isn't often that one gets really excited about a new plant book and I admit that I haven't had those emotions evoked in quite a while.... until now. I spent nearly 3 hours pouring through the pages, reading the information and learning the history and culture of some of the more obscure agaves.

This is a Must Have for anyone whom grows Agaves. The author has done a tremendous job in writing and Timber Press, as always, has put a very worthwhile book out! Kudos to both.

I highly recommend this book for anyone with an interest in the Genus Agave. Although the cultural information is geared for the US, the book contains enough information for others to adopt for their climates. The illustrations are fantastic. Dozens of species have been photograped in habitat and presented in colour and there is an ID key at the end of the book for similar species.

Greg Star's passion for agaves comes through in his writing and photography. This is more than a compendium of the genus Agave, it is a highly entertaining read. Greg's field notes in particular lend a plant hunter's insight to the habitat of each species. His humor is delightful and unexpected. This book is more than a list of plants, it's a must-have for the succulent collector and for anyone intrigued by the agaves of the desert Southwest and Mexico.

4.0 su 5 stelle Great text, albeit missing a few favorites... 14 agosto 2015
Di Wanderer - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida
On balance, an excellent and up-to-date read on many of the Agave you will find in the Southwest, graciously filled with tons of high quality, color pictures. The writing is crisp, witty and thorough, with consistency from one species to another and after a few entries, you know exactly what to expect of the just about any other section. Another great thing that this book has is a detailed section on how to distinguish between look-a-likes, including visuals and tabulations of the key differences. This is extremely helpful, especially with less mature specimens. Overall, there is very little fluff here and almost all the nitty-gritty substance that any enthusiast, hobbyist or simply interested reader will want.

That said, as is often the case, there is no perfect love. Case in point, you will find more than a few species left out here. Some, like A. gypsophila, are admittedly oddball, but to exclude A. americana and the several very well known and beautiful variegated forms? That just seems... odd. Additionally, while it covers A. bovicornuta in detail, no mention of the 'dwarf' form, A. cupreata. Another one I missed was A. franzosinii, which I would have loved to get more insight on (and certainly to see some pictures of mature specimens). When there are forms common enough to be picked up at nurseries in many parts of Arizona almost year round, it is surprising (and a little disappointing) that they're not covered in a text written by a native. Indeed, some of these are not even mentioned in the index or in passing anywhere. If there's an explanation for these gaps to be found in the text, I have not come across it.

Likewise, a slight disappointment in the section on A. salmiana, which seems all too brief and without enough coverage of the different forms and varieties. There also seems to be some confusion as it talks about A. salmiana var ferox, but no photos. Also mentions that variety as being the most commonly cultivated, which is strange because it is the single most un-common in cultivation in the US. A bit more depth on this species, especially some contrasting photos of the varieties, would have been a welcome addition.

All that said, I still can't deduct more than one star, since it is a phenomenal work and exceptionally well done. For species that are covered, it is probably the single best reference out there right now, and easily the best in terms of photography and practical advice.

Bottom line, if the Agave you seek knowledge about are covered in this book, you will not be disappointed by what you find. If they're not in the book, at the very least, you will learn a ton about the plants in general and some other species you may have never heard of. A good read either way.

This is an excellent for those in desert climates, since the author ives in Tucson, Arizona and gives growing requirements that match those conditions. He discusses a number of agaves which would add interest to the backyard landscape
