Description How to Grow Delivery

A cross between Agave and Manfreda, Mangaves boast the same sculptural form as Agaves but are hardier and faster growing – and their tiny, comb-like spines are much less vicious! This elegant succulent’s pointed, fleshy leaves are held in tight rosettes and make fabulous pot specimens for a sunny patio. In Mangave ‘Pineapple Express’, the centre of each rosette sprouts upwards like the crown of a pineapple! The sharply pointed, blue-green leaves are scattered with striking burgundy spots. Height: 40cm (16in). Spread: 50cm (20in).

Similar to Echeveria, Mangaves are drought-tolerant and low maintenance and can be kept outdoors all year in areas with mild winters.  Otherwise, they need to be brought into a frost-free greenhouse or conservatory for overwintering.

Height Up to 25cm (10in)
