Agave weberi (Weber Agave)

Agave weberi
Variegated Weber Agave, Arizona Star

This is one of the largest agave species, with wide, fleshy gray-green leaves. The leaves usually have fine teeth along the margins of the lower end of the leaf and a sharp terminal spine. The tall flower spike is branched, producing yellow flowers and occasionally bulbils as well. This agave is often seen in landcapes, but there do not appear to be any wild specimens left. Plants require full sun to part shade to look their best. Yellowing of the foliage may indicate heat stress and a requirement for more water.
