This hardy little agave is native to Coahuila, Mexico, at elevations from 4500 to 8000 feet. It is very similar in appearance and growth habit to the Agave parryi. A solitary plant, it forms a tight, symmetrical rosette of stout grey leaves which are edged with small teeth and end in a sharp spine. Its tall, branched flower spike form clusters of bright yellow flowers edged in purple. It tolerates full sun but prefers some light shade in low deserts.
