  • Stunning Coloration and Form
  • A Hybrid with Favorable Qualities
  • Phenomenal Specimen Succulent

This magical succulent will make you question whether or not you are dreaming. If you love succulents or you're mad about specimen plants that make your spectators' jaws drop, you will adore the Mad About Mangave® Moonglow Mangave (Mangave 'Moonglow'). With high contrast and bold spots, this succulent is unbeatable!

Where did we find such a robust and brilliant succulent? This new and exciting cultivar is a combination of two other marvelous genea: Agave and Manfreda from Walters Gardens, Inc. And the result is truly breathtaking. Not only is the Mad About Mangave® Moonglow magical in appearance, but it also grows like a champion.

Like the most prized hybrids, this one inherited the best of both its parents. It shows off the ravishing pattern of the Manfreda and the strength and dependable growth rate of Agave. This moonlit beauty even refines some of the less-than-desirable qualities of its parents. For instance, the tiny spine along its edges and pointy terminal spike are much softer and pliable. Nice!

This unique plant dazzles onlookers with its flat foliage with a camo-esque dappled pattern. The Mad About Mangave® Moonglow looks like it was painted by moonlight! These iridescent leaves practically shimmer with violet spots against blue, green, and silver tones.

This marvelous Mangave, like other succulents, reacts with a dramatic color change to UV light. When planted in full sun, this beauty's patterns become more flamboyant and emphasized as the UV light deepens its one-of-a-kind pattern.

When you have a plant this dazzling, you plant it front and center. Create a sensation with a pair of Mad About Mangave® Moonglow to flank your front door in containers. Or you can use this magnificent plant as an impressive accent in your garden or rock garden. And of course, this striking succulent makes a desirable specimen as a focal point that demands attention.

The Mad About Mangave® Moonglow performs best in full sun with low moisture soil. Don't let its feet stay soggy. Plant yours in quick draining soil.

Don't settle for ordinary! Add flair, spectacle, and drama to your garden with the Mad About Mangave® Moonglow. You won't want to miss out on this rare find. Order today!
