Mangave 'Mayan Queen' PPAF

MAD ABOUT MANGAVE® Collection

Common Name: Mangave

A superb succulent that's fit for a queen! Frosty blue leaves have a serrated edge, with subtle burgundy spots concentrated at the tips. From a distance, the leaves appear lavender. This burgundy spotting is most defined on the leaves that receive direct sunlight; lower leaves will be greener. The narrow leaves curl and arch downward at the tips. This is a unique hue that will lend itself well to combining with other colored succulents.

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!
