Any idea which type?

Agave azul
Agave americana
Agave parryi
Etc?

Here is a link that might be useful: Century Plant?

Probably a parryi variety, there are several.

ooh, congrats! Agave in flower. Sadly agaves die after flowering, but while the flowers last they're very spectacular!

It might have babies growing on the sides of it. I had one in Vero Beach that the flowers made little plants after they bloomed.
