A cute plant to match a cute name! Minty green leaves with a lavender overlay are lightly freckled with dark burgundy spots. Just like human freckles, the "freckles" and the overlay will be more pronounced in direct sunlight-in a greenhouse, the leaves will be greener. Margins curl up slightly to showcase its white, serrated edge. Finishing up the package are rose pink terminal spines. This is the perfect size and habit for combining with smaller scale succulents in 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!
