Not as recent marketing would have you believe a plant that has been created for men, but rather a new and exciting development in succulent breeding that is taking the gardening world by storm. A cross between the Manfreda and the Agave, Mangaves are becoming increasingly popular as the interest in Xeric landscaping grows - the process of gardening that reduces or eliminates the need for supplemental moisture from watering. Manfredas have rosettes of coloured leaves branching from a very short stem, often with creamy, tubular flowers at the end of a long stalk. Agaves on the other hand are well known for their strong succulent leaves that form large rosettes. These interesting hybrids combine the best features of both types the better growth rate and the interesting patterns and colours of Manfreda, and the habit and refinement of Agave. Varieties can be spotted, blotched or plain green in various shades and with an interesting texture, they can be a bit pointy, but definitely not as prickly as a cactus. Some of the varieties have really interesting leaf shape too, from slim and long to short and broad and wavy or straight too. 'Mint Chocolate Chip' is a uniquely eye-catching succulent with incredible wavy leaves and intense spotting. With long, silvery blue-green foliage with near-black spotting over the entire leaf, a fine white margin lines the edges of the serrated leaves giving it the appearance of a marine animal. Compact in growth and visually stunning, Mangaves make a perfect patio plant, sitting happily in a pot through the summer on your decking or balcony, they will then make a perfect houseplant through the winter in a bright room. All varieties should be watered only sparingly as they are ideally suited to dessert, arid conditions and are lovers of warm temperatures - they make an ideal specimen for a greenhouse or as a houseplant for a bright rooms - indeed anything less than 65F will result in the plant becoming dormant.

Supplied as an established plant in a 19cm pot, ready for immediate potting on. H20cm x W60cm (8 x 24in).

Top Tips
- Overwintering plants should be kept them cool with the soil barely moist. In spring, return them to the garden and reintroduce to full sun gradually to prevent scorching. Plants will colour up better in sunlight outdoors.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for Mangave:
- Using a gritty compost, plant into a container.
- Firm the soil and add a gravel mulch to the top of the soil
- Water well and leave to settle for 2-4 weeks before watering again when the soil is dry

Aftercare Advice from Mangave:
- During the summer water regularly at roughly fortnightly intervals when the compost is dry. In winter, reduce to a maximum of once a month, and then only lightly.
- Keep the plants in a bright, unheated room or conservatory over winter and then move back outside during the summer.
- Feeding is not normally required, although during their growing season, they won’t object, and you should add light nitrogen feed once a fortnight.

Pruning Advance for Mangave:
- No pruning is needed. Any leaves that have dies back should be removed with a sharp pair of secateurs.

Planting Time:
April - August
