This sport of 'Pineapple Express' has a similar habit of long, rigid leaves like the original, but with beautiful wide yellow margins. Red spots cover the leaves and are more pronounced in full sun, causing the yellow margins to appear have a glowing orange cast. A perfect accent plant for xeric gardens and containers.
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!
