This is an example of a non offsetting variety in a neighbors garden.
So here they are all potted up and in the greenhouse for the winter to give them a better chance.
I planted one in the ground in the front courtyard in the new area alongside the garage. It is below the Candelilla, Euphorbia antisyphilitica.
It does look a little forlorn for now.
Both these plants are hardy for my area and will be quite carefree.
On the subject of pups. I have one Moby's offspring. If you follow Pam Penick's blog you will know about the magnificent flowering spectacle of Moby, Agave ovatifolia, followed by hundred of offsets. It's no bigger than the Agave Victoriae Reginae but should outstrip it in growth in one or two years. For now, it too is in a pot in the greenhouse.
