Agave Queen Victoria

A truly spectacular landscaping plant for the drought tolerant garden
This is an Agave Queen Victoria that grows amazingly well in a dry landscape, ocean theme or xeriscape garden. This is the perfect basketball size slow growing plant that has a delicate painted look to it.
An Agave Queen Victoria can take 20 years to bloom with a 15 foot flowered stalk. The leaves are thick and fleshy-like with a small thorn on the end of each leaf very similar to an artichoke.
