RLP153 Macdougals Giant Century Plant ( Furcraea macdougalii )
One of the most magnificent and dramatic plants in the Agave family, this species is known only from a small area in Oaxaca, Mexico, where it grows in dry scrubland with only a short rainy season.
It forms a thick, straight trunk topped by a very distinct, stiffly erect crown of succulent, thick-based, toothed, dull green leaves to 7 feet long. Older plants can reach a height of 23 feet or more, making it the tallest of all Furcraea and Agave.
Its massive inflorescense can reach to about 25 feet tall and, like with Agave, fruiting ends the life of the plant. It is rather fast growing, tolerant of some drought and will do well without additional watering in all but the driest climates. It can take light frosts without damage. Furcraea macdougalii is a much sought after ornamental but has been rather rare in cultivation for lack of propagative material.

SF249 Spanish Stonecrop ( Sedum hispanicum )
If you are looking for a drought tolerant, low-growing, low-maintenance ground cover, this this is the one preferred by many. This plant has blue-green to gray-green, succulent foliage, and it only reaches a few inches in height.
As the weather warms, the foliage turns to a blue-grey color, and it has a soft feathery feel to it. In late spring to summer it has clusters of small whitish pink blooms.
It is a tough ground cover plant that tolerates some wear and tear such as light walking.
Commonly called Spanish Stonecrop, and although it is a sun lover in mild climates, this perennial prefers some afternoon shade in areas with extremely hot summers.
Porous well-drained soil is essential. Grow in coarse sandy or gravelly soil in a rock garden, trough, wall, or container, or use it as a small-scale ground cover on a slope or bank. In too much shade it slowly dwindles or is overtaken by neighboring plants.
Best suited for zones 4-9.
Sedum has tiny seeds which should be mixed with fine sand for an even sowing. For best results, sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost is expected. Use small pots or flats and sterile starter mix. Pre-moisten the starter mix and sow Sedum seeds on the surface. Press the seed into the moistened soil, and do not it. Keep the Stonecrop seeds moist but not saturated until they germinate.
Water from the underside of the pots or use a spray bottle and lightly mist the seeds. Plant the Sedum seedlings outdoors once sufficient growth has been made. Established plants can be divided every 3-4 years for best performance.

3340 Elephant Cactus ( World's Largest Cactus ) ( Pachycereus pringlei )
Also know as Giant Mexican Cactus, Pachycereus pringlei is a species of cactus that is native to northwestern Mexico in the states of Baja California, Baja California Sur, and Sonora.
It is the tallest cactus species in the world, with a maximum recorded height of 63 feet with a stout trunk up to 3.3 feet in diameter bearing several erect branches. In overall appearance, it resembles the related Saguaro (Carnegiea gigantea), but differs in the fewer ribs on the stems, in being more heavily branched from near to the base of the stem, and in the location of the blossoms.
Large stands of these magnificent cactus still exist, but many have been destroyed as fields have been cleared for cultivation in Sonora.
The fruit of this cactus was an important food for the Seri people in Sonora, who call the cactus xaasj
The flesh of this cactus contains alkaloids, and may have been used as a psychoactive plant in Mexico.
A symbiotic relationship with bacterial and fungal colonies on its roots allows P. pringlei to grow on bare rock even where there is no soil available at all, as the bacteria can fix nitrogen from the air and break down the rock to produce nutrients. The cactus even packages symbiotic bacteria in with its seeds.
This giant cactus can be grown in tubs when young and makes quite the conversation piece. Very slow growing, hardy for zones 9 and above outside.
