You can guess it from the name-this plant is full of spots! Long, thin light green leaves are filled with a smattering of dark burgundy spots and forms a long-growing, prostrate habit. Leaves are lined with small marginal spines. Spots are most pronounced when in direct UV light and will be mostly green under plastic. Readily forms pups or offshoots. Perfect as a stand-alone in a pot or for filling in for larger Mangave.
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!
