Mangave 'Pineapple Express' refined, spiky habit will remind you of the top of a Pineapple.
Dark Green leaves are long and slender, with pronounced Burgundy spotting. The spots will be more pronounced when in full Sun and exposed to UV light.
A waxy coating gives the leaves a minty-Green finish. Leaves are packed in tightly to form a spiky rosette. Tiny spines line the margins, and a very sharp, Cinnamon terminal spine complete the spiky look.
Plant this Mangave in a yellow or Tan container to complete the Pineapple look!
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 out in the future for more interesting and unique Mangave to join the collection!
