This succulent is one of our personal favorites with its clear and consistent variegation. Wide, cream margins are contrasted by deep blue-green centers. The rigid leaves form a relatively low horizontal habit that frames a container quite nicely. Minimal spotting near the crown is secondary to the bright green and cream color. Compared to 'Snow Leopard', 'Navajo Princess' have thicker, more heavily toothed leaves.
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!
