Mangave Mad about Mangave® 'Pineapple Express' PBR EU 58604

Perennials

Description

A revolution in plant breeding! The Mad about Mangave® series offers varieties that have interesting forms and colours. The varieties of Mad about Mangave® are fast growers. If they reach the desired size, water sparingly. Mangave loves a spot in full sun; this is where the colours and distinctive spots show best. The Mad about Mangave® are beautiful as a specimen in a pot or container but also perfect for a mixed container with other succulents. Plant Mangave in a well-drained soil. Ideal for outdoors on patio or balcony as well as indoors. The variety is hardy to -5 ºC so place it indoors in winter to enjoy this succulent even longer! ‘Pineapple Express’ has a refined, spiky habit that will remind you of the top of a pineapple. The dark green leaves are long and slender, with pronounced burgundy spotting. The spots will be more pronounced when in full sun and exposed to UV light. A waxy coating gives the leaves a minty-green finish. Leaves are packed in tightly to form a spiky rosette. Tiny spines line the margins and a very sharp, cinnamon terminal spine complete the spiky look. Plant this Mangave in a yellow or tan container to complete the pineapple look!
