We are crazy for xMangaves here at Peacock Horticultural Nursery. xMangaves are a cross between an Agave and a Manfreda. xMangaves tend to grow much faster than Agaves, and they are polycarpic, so they will flower and set seeds many times before dying. We have many of the new crosses available here @ Peacock Horticultural Nursery, including xMangave ‘Moonglow’ in the photo. As well as many more, including: xMangave ‘Inkblot, xMangave ‘Jaguar’, xMangave ‘Spotty Dotty’ and xMangave ‘Man of Steel’. And, more new varieties will be available soon. xMangave, like their parents, do not like wet feet in winter, so best planted in a well draining raised bed, or also will do great in pots.
