X Mangave 'Falling Waters' ' PP30,650 (Falling Waters Mangave) - An very interesting and ornamentally sculptural succulent plant that forms a rosette to 15 inches tall by twice as wide with recurved broad thick and pliable deeply guttered blue-gray leaves that are speckled with small pale lavender spots and have large widely spaced teeth that are well displayed on the upwardly oriented leaf margins. A very dramatic looking plant! This plant is a 2018 introduction in the Walters Gardens MAD ABOUT MANGAVEŽ Collection of plants and is a hybrid was created by Hans Hansen at Walters Gardens in Zeeland Michigan that is the result of crossing a selected Manfreda maculosawith Agave ovatifolia, the Whale's Tongue Agave, in June 2012. It received iU.S. plant patent PP30,650 on July 2, 2019. Walters Gardens says of this plant "Showcase the arching habit of this premium Mangave in a container for a low-maintenance patio plant". Though this plant is likely named for the way the foliage arches over and flows downward, appearing similar to water flowing over a rock in a fast moving stream, it could just as well be named for the famous Frank Lloyd Wright home Fallingwaters in southwestern Pennsylvania where water flows around and through portions of the house.
