Growth Report: Agaves

 The AgaveVictoria Reginae and Agave titanota 'Red Catweasel' have both happily grown a couple of new leaves this year. However my feelings about the growth of the two diverge a little bit. First of Red Catweasel is a very new very rare new hybrid so I am very happy it is doing well and it has grown two new leaves. It has lost a little bit of red colour now I put it inside but all in all I am very happy with it. Agave Victoria Reginae  is a bit of a different story. It has undeniably grown.. a bit. The thing is that this agave is prettiest when it is a bit older and forms a lovely globe showing of its variegation. At this rate it is going to take a very very long time to reach that state. When I visited the biggest garden centre a couple weeks back they had several Agave Victoria Reginae much bigger than my one for really not a lot of money at all. I am going to resist temptation and wait patiently while this grows but it is still a bit of a bummer.

Before at the end of May.
