This native of Sonora, Mexico forms a tight symmetrical rosette of narrow, stiff, dark-green leaves with smooth margins and sharp terminal spines. It does not produce offsets. The unbranched flower spike is 10 to 15 feet tall and densely crowded with yellow flowers. This agave tolerates harsh, reflected heat conditions. Plant in full sun and water sparingly to maintain a tight, compact form.
