If you've ever had a wild lock of hair that wouldn't be tamed, you've experienced a cowlick. 'Crazy Cowlick' is a plant that you won't want to tame-you'll love that wild look. Although this is a larger sized plant, the plant grows relatively flat, only reaching 8-10" tall. Broad green leaves have wavy, heavily toothed margins and cinnamon orange terminal spines. Burgundy spotting appears most intensely near the crown, but the spotting will lighten as leaves mature. Make sure this succulent sees plenty of sun! The spots are more pronounced under UV light.
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!
