What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Parry Agave
A. parryi and a Euphorbia cultivar complement each other's unique qualities through contrast. Use A. parryi to make your bright plants appear brighter or their texture appear finer.
LuAnn Brandsen added this to Pathway Plantings That Please the Senses
Among the most reliable choices are aloes, penstemons, yucca, agave, cactus and many of the perennial salvias and euphorbias. (Agave parryi and Euphorbia tirucalli 'Sticks on Fire' are shown here.)Browse great succulents for landscapes
Garden tasks by region. Low zone: It's the time when many can start harvesting citrus, including grapefruit. Appearances are sometimes deceiving, so taste test a few fruits from different parts of each tree. Living Christmas tree choices include Afghan pine (Pinus eldarica), aleppo pine (Pinus halepensis) and Italian stone pine (Pinus pinea). This is an ideal month to install new ornamental plants as well as cool-season edibles, such as lettuce, onions and peas. Medium zone: Some citrus is becoming ready to harvest, but it's a great idea to taste the fruit before spending much time picking it. Some citrus, such as grapefruit, is often not ripe until next month. Living Christmas tree choices are similar to those in the low zone, plus Arizona cypress (Cupressus arizonica and Carya glabra). Hardier plants, including those native to your area (except most palms), continue to be safe for planting this month, including Parry agave (Agave parryi), shown.High zone: Living Christmas tree choices are similar to those in the medium zone, though Aleppo pine can be tender to colder winters in colder portions of the high zone, so find out how reliable that species of pine is in your area long term before planting. Of course hardier plants, except some cacti or broadleaf evergreens, such as live oaks and India Hawthorn, are safe to plant right now.
Linear foliage may be strongly upright, as in 'Sticks on Fire' Euphorbia (shown here with Agave parryi), or it may be softly arching or even horizontal.
