Mangave 'Dreadlocks' PP31216


Common Name: Mangave

The waviest leaf margin of any MAD ABOUT MANGAVE® to date, this ruffled beauty really kicks it up a notch. Dark green leaves are heavily peppered in mahogany spots (most concentrated at the center of the leaf), with darkest coloration in full sun with UV light. The relatively low, arching habit is the perfect for framing containers.

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!
