Agave victoriae-reginae

Agave victoriae-reginaeAgave victoriae-reginae is named after English queen Victoria. It is a striking solitary agave, whose dense, compact habit and beautiful white markings on both sides of the leaves make it a very desirable ornamental plant.

Agave victoriae-reginae is one of the most remarkable succulent species in cultivation. Its toothless leaves make it user-friendly, but be careful of the sharp terminal spine on each leaf. It is a compact plant which grows to 18 inches tall and wide. Its short, robust leaves are dark green with white markings. Flowers are reddish-purple, densely packed on an unbranched spike that can reach 15 feet.

Agave victoriae-reginae is hardy to at least 10 F and possibly lower. It is extremely drought resistant and develops a tight form when watered sparingly. It does not need to be watered in winter. It benefits from full sun and well-drained soil. Non-offsetting plants do not need any maintenance; offsetting forms need periodic thinning. Because of its compact size and ornamental appeal Agave victoriae-reginae is ideal in containers, or in the garden among other succulents, nestled among boulders or in raised planters.
