x Mangave 'Lavender Lady' PP29,194 (Lavender Lady Mangave) - This attractive slow growing evergreen succulent plant forms a solitary mounded compact rosette that to 12 inches tall by 20 inches wide and holds as many as 60 flattened fleshy 7 inch long by 2 inch wide leaves that have purple-lavender spots when emerging and age first to a smoky purple color and finally to a gray-green. The leaves are pliable with a soft terminal brown spine and the margins have tiny flexible creamy-colored teeth. At maturity this plant produces a thick spike that arches over and bears hundreds of yellow flowers. Plant in full to half day sun in a well-drained soil and give occasional to regular irrigation. This is the least hardy of the Mangave hybrids and should be protected from a hard frost - likely it will prove about as hardy as its one tender parent and only be reliable in gardens that have short duration freezes not colder than around 25°F and useful in USDA Zones 9-10. It has been noted as resistant to deer and rabbit predation. A great small succulent that looks a bit like a cross between an agave and an echeveria - great for specimen or mass planting and an attractive container plant. This plant is from the Walters Gardens MAD ABOUT MANGAVEŽ Collection of plants bred by Hans Hansen. Mangave 'Lavender Lady' is the result of a cross made in January 2012 between x Mangave 'Bloodspot' (a hybrid between Agave macroacantha and Manfreda maculosa) as the female seed parent times and Agave attenuata as the pollen parent. US Plant Patent PP29,194 was issued on this plant on April 3, 2018.  The information displayed on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations that we have made of it growing in the nursery's garden and in other gardens, as well how it has performed in our crops out in the nursery field. We will incorporate comments that we receive from others as well, and welcome hear from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they have knowledge of cultural information we do not mention that would aid others in growing Mangave 'Lavender Lady' PP29,194.
