Mangave 'Purple People Eater'

  • $ 8.95
  • Save $ 6.00


As fun and crazy as the popular kid song.  This purple beauty will eat your heart out, but definitely cannot eat you.  Mangave is a fairly new concept and plant from hybridizing the manfreda and agave.   Like purple people eater these new hybrids have the pattern and vigor of the manfreda with the refined growth habit of the agave.  Purple people eater has intense purple coloration that overlays the deep green leaves like a netting.  The leaf spines are a cocktail of color from cinnamon, to yellows and oranges that add even more fun to the mix.  Each leaf ends with a cinnamon colored terminal spine that is longer that the other leaf spines and completes the display nicely.
Mangave is easy to grow needing only small doses of fertilizer and a well-drained potting mix.  In tropical areas these beauties can be grown as a landscape plant.
