I love the variety of plants in this arrangement by Mimi of I Dream of Succulents
Agave surrounded by Echeveria - a good way to bring the small plants within view, and to cover the bare dirt around the agave.
Artichoke Agave Agave parryi var. truncata Dense, symmetrical rosettes of wide blue-gray leaves are abundant, developing large clumps. Bloom spikes emerge from older rosettes, which die after flowering - the plant is perpetuated by pups or offshoots. A bright accent in the water-wise landscape or a nice groundcover when mass planted.
