x Mangave 'Coffee Jitters' PPAF - 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 longiflora and Manfreda maculosa with Agave marmorata.  The information on this page is based on our research that has been conducted in our nursery library and from online sources as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in the nursery, in the nursery's garden, and in other gardens where it has been observed. We also incorporate comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that might aid others in growing  x Mangave 'Coffee Jitters'.
