Mangave Mad About Mangave® 'Navajo Princess'

Item #29527


Perfect succulent for containers, waterwise gardens, and xeriscapes

A member of the ART & SOL™ collection, Mangave 'Navajo Princess' is a succulent tender perennial grown for its basal rosette of broad, rigid semi-fleshy foliage. The lanceolate leaves have clear and consistent variegation, with wide cream margins and deep blue-green centers. Each leaf exhibits small, flexible marginal teeth and light greyed-purple spots toward the base, which intensify in strong ultraviolet light.

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. 'Navajo Princess' has a compact, relatively low horizontal 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. 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.
