Weber's Agave

Agave weberi

A stately succulent for a rustic or Mediterranean landscape. It quickly forms a big, bold rosette with pale blue-grey leaves, that provide a striking contrast with silver, grey or dark green plants. Produces a tall flower stalk at maturity. Handsome drought tolerant accent for a dry rock garden or minimal care hillsides. Evergreen.

Drought tolerant once established, but looks best with periodic water in extreme heat. The mother plant declines after flowering; younger rosettes will perpetuate the plant.
