Mangave - Field Day 2019
 

The Mangave trial collection at San Marcos Growers
 
 
At the 2019 San Marcos Growers Field Day open house on October 4th we had 44 different Mangave cultivars on display and attendees were asked to vote for their favorite ones. We had over 300 people attend this event many of these attendees told us what their favorite Mangave was and the results of their voting is tallied below, listed in order starting with the cultivars getting the most votes. It was interesting how varied the results were with some selecting the showy variegated plants while others went more for the form of stature of the plant. The top two varieties were 'Inca Warrior' and 'Kaleidoscope'. This latter variety has been a little scarce because it does not propagate well in the micropropagation tissue culture lab but it is a plant Walters Gardens has licensed us to propagate and we have been working to build enoght stock to make it available for 2020. A complete list of all Mangaves in the dispay can be found on our Mangave Collection page.
