Twin-Flowered Agave. This quaint Agave at first glance hardly appears to be in this genus. Rather than the spiny broad stiff leaves with which we are most accustomed, this species has fine rounded leaves of a shiny green giving it the appearance of a seedling Longleaf Pine (Pinus palustris) when it is in the grassy stage. It will grow in sun or shade. In sun, the leaves become more stiff with a terminal spine; whereas, in the shade, the leaves are more lax and weeping. It will take temperatures into the teens, but if in a container, I would suggest moving it inside if the temperatures fall below 20°F. The native habitat of Agave geminiflora is oak woodlands at 3,000 to 4,000 feet in the Nayarit, Mexico. When it matures at 2-3' it can produce an unbranched flower stalk of 8-15'. When this happens, the parent plant will die and put up a number of "pups" around it that can then grow on once again.
