Agave Victoria-reginae Complex

Kelly will be sharing his love and fascination
for agave plant genus by expending on the Agave victoria-reginae complex. The Agave victoria-reginae complex consists of three species,
one of which has two proposed subspecies. Kelly will describe their native environments, and the morphological differences that were
used to delineate the species and subspecies.
Hiding in Plain Sight: A New Cactus Species from the California Desert

distinguish it from similar cholla species. This presentation will provide detailed information on where to see the “chucky cholla”
as well as many other intriguing succulents in the same areas.
