Mangave 'Maverick' PPAF

MAD ABOUT MANGAVE® Collection

Common Name: Mangave

A true maverick, this unique and showy plant bucks what you'd think of for a succulent! Long, sword-like leaves form an upright rosette. Intense burgundy spots almost completely cover the blue-green leaves. The color is best when exposed to direct UV light.

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!
