Spikes


You see a lot of these spiky plants as you walk around Monaco. These are in the gardens just below Casino square as you walk down towards the port. I'm not sure if they are Agaves or Aloes but they are tough as old boots, don't need water and produce these beautiful flowers. What more can one ask of a plant?

Love the brilliant orange against the greenery.

Very pretty plant. I need them at my house - cause if it requires water - it doesn't make it for long living with me!

Very striking...the stems sure look a lot like aloe.

Gorgeous flowers. I'm amaze that Monte Carlos has so many desert vegetation. I was expecting a more Mediterranean flora.
