Agave franzosini ‘Grey Ghost’ (pictured right) is an outstanding, if rare specimen.

Agaves will flower, usually in winter, and flowers vary from rather insipid types to colorful large flower spikes that rise high above the foliage.
As far as foliage plants go, to Agaves are a better proposition than Aloes.
