Photograph of a foxtail agave plant. The leaves are arranged in a rising spiral from the hidden base, the upper leaves inclining upward. Each leaf is thick at the base, but widens and thins toward the tip before tapering to a point. Some of the lower leaves have white mineral deposit stains where water from the sprinklers pooled and evaporated. Girders and windows are the right hand background, other plants to the left.
