Cultivar Notes - 'Mission to Mars'
A common nickname for Mars is the Red Planet, and this Mangave gets its moniker due to the unique, intense red coloration from the leaves. 2žin wide, thick green leaves are heavily speckled with burgundy red, with spots that bleed into each other for an overall red appearance. The red coloration is brought out best in direct UV light and becomes subdued under heavy plastic. The 12in long leaves form arching habit, caused by the tips of the leaves curving downward. Margins curl upward to show off its cinnamon spines, a nice color complement to the red.
Genus Notes - Mangave
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. Look to the future for more interesting and unique looks to join the collection!
