Too beautiful to be true: this blue leaved plant is spineless and loaded with exotic purple spots. It is an excellent natural hybrid between intergeneric hybrid between Manfreda variegata and Agave celsii. Potted plants will stay below 1 m in diameter but field-grown plants can attain almost 2 m ! It is really hardy to frost: it stood -13 C in North Carolina.
From the website succulentsandmore.com we learn about its origin "× Mangave ‘Macho Mocha’ originated from seed which Carl Schoenfeld, the owner of Yucca Do Nursery, took off a Manfreda variegata on a plant expedition to Mexico. Only later did he realize that the seedlings were naturally occurring hybrids between Manfreda variegata and (possibly) a nearby Agave mitis (aka Agave celsii). "
We offer a bare-rooted plant of about 15-20 cm in diameter, grown in a 14 cm pot. Container size will just give you an idea of the size of the plant, because succulent plants are sent with bare roots, as they are very tolerant of bare-rooting. We ship worldwide.
