Agave weberi (Weber Agave) - Medium-sized rosette of fleshy, spine-tipped gray-green leaves with finely-toothed margins to 4 to 5 feet tall by 6-10 feet wide. Bright yellow flowers flower on 20' branched stalks at maturity. Plant in full sun to light shade in a well-draining soil. Hardy to 10 F. The neotype for this species is noted as from between Laredo and Catarina in Texas but an occurrence of a native planting is no longer known although there are many variants found as cultivated plants in arid areas of north-central and northeastern Mexico and South Texas. This selection is a graceful smaller growing plant with gray leaves that have only tiny marginal spines. Our original plants came from Rancho Soledad nursery.  This description is based on our research and our observations of this plant growing in containers at our nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We always appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or have additional cultural tips that would aid others growing Agave weberi .
