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.  The information provided on this webpage is based on the research that we have conducted about this plant in our nursery library and that information that we have found about it on reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations in our nursery of crops of this plant, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens. We will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information aiding others in growing Agave weberi 'Reiner's Selection'.
