Mangave 'Desert Dragon' PPAF

MAD ABOUT MANGAVE® Collection

Common Name: Mangave

The more you look at this plant, the more you may expect it to come to life with its wide, twisty leaves. A ground-hugging succulent, the wiggly leaves are minty green and overlayed with dark purple spots. The perfect choice for the landscape or a low, wide container.

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!
