And that brings me to Mangave, which is in a class of its own. These Agave hybrids grow faster than agaves and offer more interesting foliage colors and shapes.

Mangave started as a few odd plants that were an accidental cross between some agave and Manfreda plants that were in joining fields which were found in the 90s. They sat in a green house for several years forgotten until the greenhouse cover came off in a storm. After being exposed to ultraviolet light they turned into all these unbelievable colors and the right person noticed. After years of further hybridizing by Hans Hansen, he has created a sensational “new” plant for us to enjoy.
