Imagine plugging a beach ball into a 240-volt outlet, and you can begin to picture this cool agave. This dwarf seed strain of the Queen Victoria agave makes a very tight, leafy ball with the typical dramatic white veining for which this species is known. In the garden, where space is a consideration, or in a small container, this "compact" form is a great choice.
