This small to medium-sized Mangave has a classic "Agave look" while still being a Mangave hybrid. What's special about this succulent is its blue coloration-a perfect choice for combining with other colored succulents such as green or red. It gets its silvery blue appearance from the waxy coating to the leaves. This forms a perfectly symmetrical rosette of very rigid leaves that are edged with dark brown margins and terminal spines. The brown margins really make the blue color pop!
Mangave is a relatively new phenomenon, as a cross between the genus Manfreda and Agave. These rare hybrids combine the best of both worlds: the better growth rate and the interesting patterns of Manfreda, and the habit and refinement of Agave. We are very excited about our new hybrids from Walters Gardens, Inc. hybridizing. Growers will appreciate the fast growth rate of Mangave-these hybrids finish more quickly than Agave, thanks to their Manfreda parentage. Look to the future for more interesting and unique looks to join the collection!
