This clonal selection of the compact form of Agave victoriae-reginae comes from Yucca Do Nursery, where it was selected for its perfectly symmetrical form and nice white leaf markings. Agave victoriae-reginae is painfully slow growing, so expect about 5-10 years before you'll have a basketball-sized clump. Good winter drainage and a slightly sloped planting site are important for survival. When they finally flower, the 15' tall stalks of tightly held yellow flowers make great hummingbird magnets.
