Agave colorata is found in Southern Sonora and Northern Sinaloa, primarily from the coast up to about 1000' in the foothills. There are two distinct forms, one a smaller more spoon shaped leaf plant that offsets, and a second medium sized plant, non-offsetting, with elongated leaves. I have seen the first form, at Aquibiquichi, Sonora, the type locality. I have also seen the second one, in a palm canyon near San Carlos Bay, occuring with Brahea brandeegei, Washingtonia robusta, and possibly Brahea clara. The beautiful Acacia willardiana and a fourth palm, Sabal uresana, were also found here. Agave colorata can be grown in full sun and is hardy to the high teens.
