x Mangave 'Bloodspot'

In some recent treatments of these genera Manfreda is placed within Agave, making this an interspecific Agave hyrid rather than an intergeneric. But the jury still seems to be out so we'll keep the x Mangave label for now. Whatever it's botanical name, it's still 'Bloodspot', a very appropriate name. It's probably quite hardy, but not hardy enough for us here in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. Not a big deal because it makes a very nice potted specimen.


  1. Hola Lutero muy hermosa como todo lo que has mostrado en estos días que no he pasado espero que estés muy bien, No se que me pasa pero estos últimos días estoy inquieta, tal vez sea que la televisión se habla mucho del fin del mundo y puras atrocidades, un abrazo.

  2. Hi Marisol, I'm fine...just too busy. Just got back from the Oregon State Fair where we watch the horse show. Then, tomorrow we have to get a large order ready to ship to Korea. My best advice: turn off the TV. I almost never watch television news. There are a few good newspapers which I read, as well as articles on line. And remember, beauty is all around us, no matter what the bad news of the day is.
