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 Inspiring 4 aprile 2017
Di T. M. Bosley - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
This is an intriguing, even inspiring book.
It is beautiful and has a lot of information that will ward off much disappointment. For example, I had a Macroanthia and and Queen Victoria Agave, which I was going to plant on the North and South side of my house respectively. After consulting Gregg’s book, I know I need to flip that. Also, I just purchased a small Agave Montana and I was going to plant it in my usual sandy gravelly mix of dirt. But, through this book Gregg informed me that the Montana is native to a high pine forest and needs more organic matter.
Each Agave discussed has a section on landscaping use which is useful. But, it is the pictures of the Agave in their native habitat really make the book. What a difference between seeing an agave in a one gallon black plastic at you local nursery and seeing the full grown specimen growing off a cliff in Mexico.
The lists are very helpful: most frost hardy, most frost tender, most xeric and the size lists. An indispensable book for any xeric gardener.

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.

5.0 su 5 stelle Great book on agaves that is very readable. 19 settembre 2016
Di Troy Larsen - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
This book is a great read if you are interested in agaves. The encyclopedia section does not include ALL of the possible varieties that you may encounter. I would love it if there were an updated edition with more varieties added. But the varieties that are included are relevant and I still find it a great book to have. We recently moved to Arizona and I love agave plants. I have learned from the book on the care of these plants. And the photos are fantastic.

5.0 su 5 stelle Lots of good information 12 luglio 2013
Di Mrs. Darcy - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
The information and photographs are so useful I wish it covered all Agave species. The species and cultivars in this book are limited to cold-hardy, recently discovered, and under-appreciated species, plus innovative cultivars.

One extremely valuable feature is the suggestions for companion plantings that will thrive in the same conditions. Mr. Starr was a garden designer and grower of all sorts of xeric plants prior to specializing in Agaves, so his suggestions can be relied on. Another valuable point of the book are the photos of plants in their native locations, which gives understanding as to what conditions the plant really needs to be successful. And the photos are gorgeous. It exceeded my expectations. A good companion to the Gentry book.

5.0 su 5 stelle Very good writing style and organization; excellent source of information 25 febbraio 2015
Di Craig Jackson - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
This book tries to appeal to several audiences. The first audience is the people of the horticultural world who would love the stories behind the plants and the locations where they were originally found. The other audience is the novice or intermediate agave gardener. It's tough to pull off such a multi-audience book, but I think the author succeeds because of his down to earth writing style, sense of humor, and organization. Most people who are interested in agaves will really like this book by such person who was historically key to bringing agaves to our attention.
