Description
Three photographs labeled "Agave attenuata", "Agave attenuata N. R-52", and "Agave attenuata close up of flowers" mounted on a black page. Commonly referred to as a "foxtail" agave, due to the appearance of the flower stem (inflorescence) which Hertrich is here supporting in the picture on the left. William Hertrich was Superintendent of Botanical from 1927 to 1949.
