Agave victoriae-reginae and its close relatives

Walker, Colin C. (2017). Agave victoriae-reginae and its close relatives. CactusWorld, 35(3) pp. 159–166.


Agave victoriae-reginae is justifiably popular as a beautiful architectural plant. There are, however, similar, closely related species, notably A. nickelsiae (formerly known as A. ferdinandi-regis) and the recently described (hence unfamiliar) A. pintilla which are equally beautiful. All three species are discussed both in cultivation and in habitat.
