Agave 'Arizona Star' is a PDN introduction, propagated from a plant we discovered in a block of the central Mexican Agave weberi at Arizona's Mountain States Wholesale Nursery. We'd like to thank them for allowing us to make this find available. Agave weberi 'Arizona Star' makes a large, 4' tall x 7' wide specimen of 5" wide blue-green leaves, each surrounded by a 1.5" wide yellow border. The leaves have only tiny, barely visible spines along the leaf edge and one real spine at the leaf tip. This plant is not the same as Agave weberi 'Marginata', which for us has been much slower growing with cream-colored margins. Agave flowers attract hummingbirds.
