x Mangave SMG Mix A diverse collection of seedling Mangave plants that resulted in intentional crossing of the unique x Mangave 'Bloodspot, thought to be a hybrid between Agave macroacantha and Manfreda maculosa, as the seed parent with the equally interesting small Agave nizandensis as the pollen parent. Meanwhile bees simultaneously carried on their own business crossing the x Mangave with a nearby flowering Agave filifera and it appears from the resulting plants that that the bees were the more successful.  The information provided on this webpage is based on the research that we have conducted about this plant in our nursery library and that information that we have found about it on reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations in our nursery of crops of this plant, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens. We will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information aiding others in growing Mangave SMG Mix.
