This incredibly attractive, award-winning Agave Victoriae-Reginae Queen Victoria is a beautiful succulent forming a perfectly spherical, solitary rosette of thick, smooth and spineless, dark green leaves. Each leaf is adorned with almost 'hand-painted' white margins and a small terminal spine. While infrequent, mature plants (over 10 years) flower only once, bearing dense clusters of creamy-white flowers. Very slow-growing, this distinctive agave is terrific for sunny borders or containers.
