Still Mad about Mangaves

Just back from the center of xMangave breeding at Walters Gardens in Michigan. xMangave are mesmerizing hybrids between Manfreda and Agave. Here are a few photos from the display garden there.

  1. Wish ‘Inca Warrior’ would be put back into production for retail sales. I missed out on that one when it was originally offered. It is quite distinctive from the other Mangaves being offered currently, and is a beauty that deserves to be widely available again.

  2. Great news! I will definitely watch for it (as well as the newer offerings like ‘Queen for a Day’…what a stunner!)
