this plant is photographed in hamirpur H.P. , growing wild, agave or yucca, not sure, Which Species? Any Idea pls
Pl. check comparative images and keys at Agave
spines along the edges are visible (in a small section of the picture only) so its Agave. yucca is spineless. so next time pay attention to leaf thickness, end pint, and edges
Is it Agave americana?
Leaf thickness and width rules it out I think, …
the leaf is not robust enough. look at these
the following url shows pictures with cross sections of the leaves. I call that ROBUST … thick… leaves
the presented plant is agave thin leaved. thin enough to flop over. not Agave Americana. sorry to bring a negative opinion
Thanks, …, There are lot of mis-identification in these species. We have to follow keys at Agave
