We are thrilled to offer this delightful Mexican native, normally reserved only for the houseplant trade. Amazingly, A. victoriae-reginae has fared well here through 9 degrees F and has survived even colder temperatures at the NC Zoo in Asheboro, NC. 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.
