Slow growing, EASY and Escheresque, "Queen Victoria Agave" is one of the most sought after succulents, forming a shapely, strikingly variegated 12" tall and 18" across dense rosette. The stout, faceted, forest green leaves are dramatically edged in chalky white – each tipped with a terminal spine. A showstopper focal point in a succulent or container garden, it thrives in well-drained soil. Side-dress with compost or a potassium rich fertilizer like liquid seaweed once a year. Occasional Summer water keeps it fat and happy! Hardy to at least 10 degrees F.
