Mangave are strikingly architectural plants that are hybrids between Agave and Manfreda, combining the best qualities of both. These fleshy evergreen perennials form a tight rosette of pointed leaves, giving a bold silhouette that will become the centre of attention in any sunny border, gravel garden or patio pot! Exuding a truly exotic feel and thriving on dry conditions, these Echeveria-like succulents are perfect for drought-prone areas and tricky sandy soils. Mangave 'Mission to Mars' is a striking and truly alien-looking variety boasting pointed, arching leaves that are so heavily blotched with burgundy that the whole leaf appears red – just like the planet it is named after! Height: 25cm (10in). Spread: 55cm (22in).

Mangaves are hardier than most agaves and can be grown outside all year round in areas with very mild winters such as coastal and city gardens, but like most tender perennials, will otherwise need to be brought into a frost-free greenhouse or conservatory over winter.

Boasting the architectural qualities of an Agave, but much faster growing, Mangave 'Mission to Mars' makes a striking specimen plant for a conservatory or patio pot with its bold silhouette of spiky red leaves.

Grow Mangave in a container using very free-draining soil or cactus compost. Grow in full sun outside or within a few metres of a south-facing window in a conservatory/glasshouse maintaining a temperature of 8° - 32°C (46° - 90°F). Mangave can be grown outdoors in the UK between spring and summer as a patio plant or planted in a free-draining, sunny border as perennial bedding.

Water regularly in summer but allow the compost to almost completely dry out between waterings following a 'drenches between droughts' regime. Feed every 2 months in the growing season with a cactus fertiliser. Keep dry in winter. Except in very mild areas they will need to be brought indoors over winter.

Repot every 3 years or so, moving up into a pot just slightly bigger than the previous one. Mangaves can be propagated very easily from offsets that form around the base.

Live Plants

Organic Garden Catalogue strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.

Non Standard Deliveries
