Agave potatorum

Agave potatorum is an extremely variable species. This picture is of one we've had for quite a few years. It stays quite small but clumps and the patterns of the leaves and thorns can be quite fascinating.
Oh, and the name comes from the Latin: "potator", which translates as "of the drinkers", referring to alcoholic beverages made using this plant.
