Mangave 'Praying Hands'


Mangave 'Praying Hands' is an amazing succulent with thick green leaves and brown margins growing upward like an artichoke.

Collectors beware! Mangave 'Praying Hands' is the new fashion statement coming from the interesting intergeneric cross between Manfreda and Agave. More in the shape of an artichoke, the thick, dark green leaves are lightly mottled and curl upward and inward with margins finely lined in cinnamon brown running from the base all the way up to the pointed terminal spikes. Grows 8-10 inches tall and wide. Perfect in a container, in the rock garden, as a specimen and focal point. Very easy to grow. Protect in winter. Deer and rabbit resistant.
