Agave weberi

This is a striking medium-sized agave that can grow to 5' tall by 6-10' wide.  This 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.
