Agave pedunculifera - A graceful plant that forms mostly solitary rosettes to 4 feet wide with broad lance-shaped olive to bluish-green soft leaves that recurve back. It is very similar to Agave attenuata but less upright, only forms a trunk with considerable age and has leaves that have small soft teeth (minutely denticulate) along the leaf margins with a narrow pointed tip that appears sharp, but is soft and bends easily. Plant in full sun to shade in a well-drained soil with regular to occasional irrigation. Should prove hardy to around 28 °F but further testing is required. This plant comes from the Mexican states of Sinaloa, Durango, Nayarit and Jalisco, where it can be found growing along sheer cliff faces of rocks that are of volcanic origin.

Light: Agave plants prefer a spot with full sun, meaning at least six hours of direct sunlight on most days. But they can tolerate a little shade. The hotter the climate is, the more shade they can handle.

Watering: Mature agave plants are very drought tolerant. You generally only need to water them if you've had a long stretch without rainfall and the soil is completely dry. However, when you are first establishing a plant, water it every four or five days for the first month. Then, water once a week, and gradually space watering to every other week, depending on rainfall.
