x Mangave 'Coffee Jitters' PP31,275 - A low growing rosette forming evergreen plant that hugs the ground, rising to only 6 inches tall and growing to 2 feet wide with many narrow, rubbery and deeply channeled dark purple-brown leaves that have soft light colored teeth along the margins. This is a very new plant for us and we have not tested it out fully but likely it will do best in full to part sun in a well-drained soil with irrigate occasionally to infrequent irrigation. Probably hardy to 20-25. Tony Avent of Plants Delight Nursery says of this plant "'Coffee Jitters' is an elegant and architecturally interesting specimen for a color bowl or combination planter". This 2018 hybrid created by Hans Hansen at Walters Gardens is the result of crossing a hybrid between Manfreda maculosa and Agave marmorata Manfreda longiflora. It received US Plant Patent PP31,275 on December 24, 2019.  The information on this page is based on our research that has been conducted on this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in the nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Mangave 'Coffee Jitters' PP31,275.
