x Mangave 'Mayan Queen' PP31,312 (Mayan Queen Mangave) - A beautiful plant that develops a solitary very symmetrical rosette up to 15 inches tall and 3 feet wide with succulent frosty silver-gray colored arching recurved leaves that have a dark purple mottled overlay. This coloration is densest towards the leave tips and the leaf margins are shallowly serrated with hard rubbery teeth. From a distance the general appearance of the leaves is that they are a solid lavender color and this coloration is enhanced when grown in full sun.

Plant in full to half day sun in a well-drained soil and give occasional to regular irrigation. It has been noted as resistant to deer and rabbit predation. This plant is a 2017 introduction in the Walters Gardens MAD ABOUT MANGAVEŽ Collection of plants bred by Hans Hansen. Walters Gardens says of this plant "A superb succulent that's fit for a queen!" 'Mayan Queen' is a complex hybrid involving a Manfreda cultivar, Agave macroacantha and A. pablocarrilloi (AKA Agave gypsophila, Hort.). This plant has a U.S. Plant Patent pending. The picture on this page courtesy of Walters Gardens. This plant was discontinued by Walter Gardens but we liked it so much that we were granted the right to propagate it in 2018 and continue to grow and sell it.
