MAD ABOUT MANGAVE® 'Man of Steel' Mangave

  • Compact Habit,
  • Silvery-Green Foliage,
  • Agave Manfreda Hybrid

Ships in Spring by USDA Zone

This Mangave produces a medium-sized rosette of narrow, sword-like leaves. ‘Man of Steel’ has attractive silvery-green foliage, and get their light color from a waxy coating. The 1/2 inch wide leaves form a tidy, refined, circular rosette. Leaves are lined with dark orange margins that are slightly rough to the touch. Thinner leaves make this Mangave easy to handle. Mangaves are a cross between an Agave and a Manfreda. These combine the better growth rate and the attractive patterns of Manfreda, and the habit and charm of Agave. Hardy for zones 8 and up. Bring indoors for northern locations. ‘Man of Steel’ grows to a height of 8 inches, with a span of 16 inches, and is drought tolerant. A beautifully stunning Mangave, especially when paired with ‘Mission to Mars’ Mangave for contrast.
