Bayonet leaves..

Bayonet leaves..
leave them alone .. "Another Link in the Chain" -- from prickly Aloe to sharp, prickly Bayonet Leaves --
they aren't called Spanish bayonet for no reason ..
the spikes on the ends of the bayonets can go through clothing ..
these are planted in groupings near the exit at the gas station ..
what the owners plan on doing when these Spanish bayonets mature, have no clue ..
growth can reach up to 20 ft. ..
