Description / Mangave Mad About Mangave® 'Blazing Saddles'

Mangave 'Blazing Saddles' stands as a distinguished member of the MAD ABOUT MANGAVE® collection, earning acclaim for its succulent tender perennial nature. This captivating plant boasts an attractive basal rosette of short, fleshy linear to lanceolate leaves. Each green leaf is a canvas of artistry, adorned with painterly spotting and mottling in a clear red hue that comes to life in sunshine.

An exquisite result of the intergeneric cross of Manfreda x Agave, Mangave hybrids, including 'Blazing Saddles,' seamlessly blend the superior growth rate and intriguing patterns of Manfreda with the refined habit of Agave. With its low, compact habit and moderate growth rate, 'Blazing Saddles' takes center stage as a stellar specimen in the garden. Whether gracing rock, alpine, and waterwise gardens or adding character to xeriscapes, this plant stands out. Its versatility extends to being an exceptional container plant, thriving both indoors and outdoors. For regions facing chilly winters, a move indoors is recommended, where temperatures above 60°F. can be assured.

Mangave finds its prime in a sunny location with dry to average, well-drained soil. Young plants appreciate moderate moisture, yet extremes of overly wet or extremely dry conditions should be avoided. Established plants, however, exhibit drought tolerance and prefer a slightly dry state during winter. Caution is advised against overly wet soil, as it may lead to crown and root rots that may ultimately kill the plant. Mangave 'Blazing Saddles' is a fortress against deer and rabbits.
