Description How to Grow Delivery

Mangave are strikingly architectural plants that are hybrids between Agave and Manfreda, combining the best qualities of both. These fleshy evergreen perennials form a tight rosette of pointed leaves, giving a bold silhouette that will become the centre of attention in any sunny border, gravel garden or patio pot! Exuding a truly exotic feel and thriving on dry conditions, these Echeveria-like succulents are perfect for drought-prone areas and tricky sandy soils. Mangave 'Mission to Mars' is a striking and truly alien-looking variety boasting pointed, arching leaves that are so heavily blotched with burgundy that the whole leaf appears red – just like the planet it is named after! Height: 25cm (10in). Spread: 55cm (22in).

Mangaves are hardier than most agaves and can be grown outside all year round in areas with very mild winters such as coastal and city gardens, but like most tender perennials, will otherwise need to be brought into a frost-free greenhouse or conservatory over winter.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.
