Mangave

Mangave is a relatively new phenomenon, as a cross between the genus Manfreda and Agave. We have probably all seen or grown Agaves before, and perhaps been impaled on their sharp spines, but Manfredas seem to have been overlooked by most. They're more hardy than Agaves, and grow faster and don't injure the gardener so easily. When hybridized you get the form, color variation and structure of Agave on a faster growing, less lethal plant! Some are hardy as far as zone 8, but they are best treated as tender. Ours are potted so they enjoy summers on the patio, and then are stored cold (but above freezing) and dry all winter. I have generally stayed away from the succulent craze, but I will make an exception for Mangaves.
