If you're looking for a large succulent to serve as a thriller for your container, you've definitely found it with 'Iron Man'-this is one of the largest, most architectural specimens of the assortment. The large leaves have a very intense, deep blue green color. Similar to some Agave, as the leaves unfurl, they leave heavy imprinting on surrounding leaves. Wavy, serrated margins complete the look.
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!
