Agave victoriae-reginae is a delightful Mexican native, normally known best as a houseplant. Amazingly, Agave victoriae-reginae has fared well here through 7 degrees F in our garden, when kept dry during the winter. The tight, often singular, rosettes make a 15" wide clump of thick dark green, toothless leaves (bad hygiene), each adorned with dramatic, linear white bands. As the plant matures into a regal clump, you will quickly see how it earned the nickname "Queen Agave." As with all agaves, winter drainage and protection from moisture below 20 degrees F is absolutely critical.
