Fun to add as a darker element in containers, Mangave are relatively new on the plant scene…they are crosses between Manfreda and Agave, boasting the best attributes of both: Agave’s form, and no sharp spines and dark colorings of Manfreda. ‘Inkblot’ has dark gray green foliage adorned with darker maroon black spots. This is smaller form, growing 8-10″ tall, but note that Mangave achieve size faster than most Agave.
