Mangave 'Ink Blot' is an exciting new attractive succulent that has a low, wide habit with large, attractive spotting from its Manfreda blood, and thick, wide leaves from its Agave blood.
Dark green leaves with blood red spotting arch downward, perfect for framing decorative containers. Although striking white spines line the curled up margins, these aren’t deadly like you would expect from Agave, but softer to the touch. More exposure to UV light will brighten the dark colouration and the spotting.
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.
Everyone 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 Mangave to join the collection!
