Mangave Mad About Mangave® 'Aztec King'

Item #29522


A new and unique Mangave plant

A member of the MAD ABOUT MANGAVE® collection, Mangave 'Aztec King' is a succulent tender perennial grown for its impressive very large rosette of cascading, broad, fleshy, silvery green foliage mottled with burgundy flecks, which intensify in strong ultraviolet light. With maturity, the foliage becomes arching, and the initially flexible, finely dentated teeth become firm and sharp.

Mangave is an intergeneric cross of Manfreda x Agave, giving these hybrids the better growth rate and interesting patterns of Manfreda and the habit and refinement of Agave. 'Aztec King' has an arching habit and a moderate growth rate. A great specimen in the garden, it's a good choice for rock, alpine, and waterwise gardens or for xeriscapes. But it's an excellent container plant, inside or outside. A large terra cotta pot or 3-gallon container will allow the plant to reach its full potential and show off its impressive size and shape. In regions with cold winters, the plant will need to be moved inside and should be held at temps above 60°F.

Mangave grows best in a sunny location with dry to average, well-drained soil. Young plants require moderate moisture. Overly wet or extremely dry conditions should be avoided; however, established plants are drought tolerant, and in winter, should be grown slightly dry. But overly wet soil can cause crown and root rots or premature death. The plant is deer and rabbit resistant.
