The unique pattern of this Mangave will certainly catch your eye and make you want to dance. Long, narrow, graceful dark green leaves have a unique lighter central band. Stiff leaves have soft marginal teeth that are easy on the fingers. The habit is relatively low to the ground, especially on young plants. Leaves arches gracefully with age to form a compact, upright habit. This succulent looks attractive both in containers and the landscape.
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!
