Remember the Manwich? LOL. It was a man's sandwich.
Well, now there's X Mangave. X Mangaves are an intergeneric hybrid between Agaves and Manfredas. They have the architectural interest of Agaves with the speckled fun of Manfredas. Why hasn't someone come up with a Manfreda called 'Kahlo' yet?!
Anywho, a couple years ago I bought an unnamed Mangave from a succulent grower at the Riverside garden tour meeting area. I had no idea how big it would get but now I know. And judging from the pups I would assume mine is full grown. It's about 2' x 2'. The deep burgundy ends of the leaves and the spots are a real treat. I hate that I don't know the name of this beautiful clone. If I had to guess I would have to say that it was a hybrid of Agave desmetiana and a Manfreda.
If you know the name of this plant, it's history or anything at all about it, will you please tell me? Thanks.
