Agave weberi 'Reiner's Selection' (Reiner's Agave) - This is a medium-large rosette-forming agave to 5 feet tall by 6-10 feet wide with broad gray-green leaves that have smooth, nearly spineless margins and a dark brown terminal spine. Plant in full sun to light shade in a well-draining soil. It is hardy to 10 F.. This plant is thought to be a selection of Agave weberi, of north-central and northeastern Mexico and South Texas. This selection was made by Reiner Radermacher, the legendary grower at Rancho Soledad Nursery. Rancho Soledad nursery has applied the temporary name 'Reinerii' to this plant but we prefer to list this stunning plant as a selection of Agave weberi.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Agave weberi 'Reiner's Selection'.
