Mangave ‘Lavender Lady’ is a unique, feminine beauty whose solitary rosette habit and smoky Purple coloration make it look very similar to an Echeveria.
In direct sunlight, smoky Purple leaves are formed at the top of the rosette and have subdued Burgundy purple dots. As the rosette ages, the ovate leaves lighten to Green, forming a two-tone effect. Each leaf has a Cinnamon Brown terminal spine. The margins are lined with tiny White spines; running your fingers along them feels like a comb, as they are fairly benign.
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!
