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 on this page is based on our research that has been conducted on this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in the nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Agave weberi.
