Agave striata ssp. falcata  

This species has very narrow leaves about 1/4" and up to 2' in length. Leaves often are reddish and are not numerous. Native in NE Mexico it occurs on dry hills. Needs full sun but in the low desert light shade will help. It seems hardy to 15F. This differs from the species with wider and fewer leaves.
