x Mangave is cross between an Agave and a Manfreda . From this rarely occurring crossing of genera we already have some nice plants including Mangave ‘Macho Mocha’, Mangave ‘Espresso’, Mangave ‘Rio Verde’ and Mangave ‘Bloodspot’.
x Mangave ‘Bloodspot’ resulted in a cross between Agave macroacantha and a Manfreda sp. In a flat of x Mangave ‘Bloodspot’ I discovered a variant that only has maroon spots along the borders of the leaves. This characteristic seems to come true with all the pups as well. So, I have decided to call it x Mangave ‘Spotted Borders’.FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER
