Mangave 'Black Magic' PPAF

MAD ABOUT MANGAVE® Collection

Common Name: Mangave

An easily recognizable variety that you can identify by its near back leaves. The long, flat, lance-shaped leaves are so heavily spotted that they appear to solid black. In containers, this leaf tips of this succulent will arch downward. Beautiful in both mono and combo containers. Give it plenty of UV light to get the richest black color.

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 (shall we say mad?) 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!
