This will certainly be the center of attention in your garden or patio! The vivid color palette of red, purple, and green will make your neighbors jealous. Each long, broad leaf has a central band that is burgundy red, while the surrounding margins are deep purple with hints of olive green. The colors are brought out best in full sun-and will appear greener under plastic or shade. A striking color that makes it an ideal choice as a centerpiece for combinations in containers and the landscape.
Mangave is a relatively new phenomenon, an intergeneric cross of Manfreda x 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 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!
