Agave weberi (Weber Agave) - Medium-sized rosette of fleshy, spine-tipped gray-green leaves with finely-toothed margins to 5 to 6 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.  The information provided on this page is based on research we have conducted about this plant in our nursery's library, from what we have found about it on reliable online sources, as well as from 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 also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing  Agave weberi.
