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.  This information is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of it in our nursery of crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we have visited. We will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Mangave SMG Mix.
