Mangave 'Falling Waters': The wavy, blue-green leaves on this unique Mangave cascade down the plant like water from a fountain. Each leaf has very faint spots that are more pronounced when grown in full sun, with the overall effect highlighting the sculptural appearance of the plant. The leaves fold upward to display heavily toothed margins. Showcase the arching habit of this premium Mangave potted or in a border for a low-maintenance patio plant.
We also offer this variety in a larger 3.5" pot.
Mangave are a relatively new phenomenon: a cross between Manfreda and Agave. These rare cultivars are expertly hybridized by Hans Hansen of Walters Gardens to combine the best of both parents. Though the have a similar form to a typical Agave, they are marked with spots and flush brilliant purple and red tones when grown in bright sun. Additionally, they grow about twice as fast as Agave and are far less spiny to the touch.
This variety will not survive a hard frost, but if there is a risk of freezing temperatures they can be brought indoors to grow temporarily on a sunny window sill or under a grow light. They thrive outdoors in partial to full sun with good drainage, i.e. gritty soil and containers with drainage holes. Mangave can tolerate a bit more shade and water than regular Agave, especially when they are establishing roots. Full Mangave Guide
