What to Plant in Sonoma


The Santa Rosa Press-Democrat, clearly the victim of a changing newspaper marketplace, recommends you plant agaves in your front yard.

(The) century plant, as agaves are commonly called, has many appealing qualities. Its spineless, sword-shaped, thickened leaves unfold in an open, slightly flattened rosette while maintaining a rigid conical center — all striking architectural elements….

In summer, provide ample water to keep agaves from shriveling and be sure to fertilize in poor soils. Although these are succulent species that store water, they must have sufficient supplies during the growing season so they can hoard it for later use if needed.

Good advice, but no pictures.
