A cute plant to match a cute name! Minty green leaves with a lavender overlay are lightly freckled with dark burgundy spots. Just like human freckles, the "freckles" and the overlay will be more pronounced in direct sunlight-in a greenhouse, the leaves will be greener. Margins curl up slightly to showcase its white, serrated edge. Finishing up the package are rose pink terminal spines. This is the perfect size and habit for combining with smaller scale succulents in 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.
