    If you want a garden that you will never, ever need to water, consider agaves. There are more than a hundred agave species and varieties available to gardeners in Southern California, so you will have plenty of options if you decide to go all in with them. The genus name Agave is derived from a Greek word meaning “noble,” and both the appearance and biology of agave species possess noble aspects. Many species, those that grow no more than a foot or two in height, have the appearance of royal crowns; one is named after a queen (Agave victoriae-reginae) and another is named after a king (Agave ferdinandi-regis). Along with maize and potatoes, agaves were a pillar of the economies of the Aztec and Mayan peoples. Agaves were utilized for food and drink, as well as in the manufacture of soap, textiles and clothing, red dye, needles, medicines, and fencing. Agaves also display nobility in sacrificing themselves, after a decade or two of life, for the next generation as they throw all their energy into flowering and then die. Agave...
