Kindly identify the species
On further consideration, I think it is Agave americana only.
Sir, the 3rd picture shows crenate or sinuate margin in young leaves, besides leaf blade colour is unpolished marble or stone like, leaves are rigid except two or three at base. Also leaf lade is significantly broad at the middle and above. I would go for A. americana.
Oh! yes Sir, certainly, I agree with you.
Yes, it’s Agave americana
Agave americana: 1 high res. image.
Strong and sharp apical spine, clearly visible at the top left of the plate, considerably thick leaf base, crenate (situate) margins in young leaves, I would suggest Agave americana L.
