Finally have some of the many exciting new Mangaves and a new Manfreda available @ Peacock Horticultural Nursery.
Mangave ‘Moon Glow’
Manfreda undulate ‘Mint Chocolate Chip’ – Like one of my favorite plants – Manfreda ‘Chocolate Chips’, Mint Chocolate Chip has wider wavy leaves, darker spotting and the leaves are even more silver-blue.
Mangave ‘Inkblot’ – Another Agave and Manfreda cross to 6 – 8″ tall and 18 – 22″ wide, with dark spotting on leaves.
Mangave ‘Moon Glow’ – Another cross, this one between Mangave ‘Bloodspot’ and Manfreda ‘Chocolate Chips’, to 6″ tall and 2′ wide, with dark spotting.
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’.
