Love agaves but don’t think you have the space? Agave victoriae-reginae is petite in form, much like its namesake, Queen Victoria. Growing to 1’ tall by 1-2’ wide, this diminutive, crown-like agave is a lesson in spirals and fractals, with each green, three-dimensional leaf streaked in white with the same sculptural pattern. As with many agaves, the Queen Victoria blooms at maturity, at approximately 10-15 years, sending up a tall stalk of yellow flowers that turn reddish-purple. Native to the Mexican desert, this agave is cold hardy to 10-15° F. Drought tolerant with low water needs, it likes full sun and good drainage. The lovely Queen Victoria Agave is a spectacular specimen for desert, coastal, and water-wise gardens.
