This beautiful succulent is a complex cross between an Agave and a Manfreda. 'Spotty Dotty' gets its beautiful spots from its Manfreda blood, and its thick, wide leaves from its Agave parentage. Beautiful medium green leaves are covered with small, dark burgundy purple spots. Very wide leaves fold up at the margins, displaying its sienna orange marginal teeth and long terminal spines. Leaves completely overlap each other, leaving little to no gaps, creating a full looking plant that's perfect for containers. Its leaves are softly wavy, creating unique texture. This succulent maintains a relatively low profile.
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!
