This is a striking medium-sized agave that can grow to 5' tall by 6-10'
agave has very fine marginal teeth, and is sometimes spineless.
Supplemental summer watering can prevent yellowing from heat
stress in the summer. These
plants are also moderately cold hardy, tolerant of temperatures
down to 12f. More
refined looking than americana.
Prone to weevils. Native in Eastern central Mexico. One
of the largest of the Agaves.
