I can't remember the name of this plant nor can I find all the little stakes I'd printed its name on and stuck about in the leaves. I keep thinking that
its common name is "measlewart" but I could be misremembering. It will grow in the shade but wants at least a few hours of sunshine to bloom. The flowers are little greenish star-shaped gals at the ends of the 8' long stalks. Maybe I'll go hunt for the name stake its a very pleasant 70° outside.

OMG! Thank you! The name has eluded me for so many years! Manfreda maculosa aka Deciduous agave! Thank you, thank you! (and they are not fussy at all! They have grown in pots, in clay, in sun, in shade, been neglected, been babied, they just keep growing and multiplying no matter what.)
