Mangave Purple People Eater (Mangave)

(Mad About Mangave® Collection) This hybrid perennial succulent sports blue-green sword-like leaves with burgundy spotting, making it appear purple, with the latter shade becoming more intense when exposed to more sunlight. The spiny arms are much less thorny than its Agave parent, and it’s growth rate comes from the Manfreda.  Slow growth rate.
