Description / Mangave Mad About Mangave® 'Bad Hair Day'

A member of the ART & SOL™ collection, Mangave 'Bad Hair Day' is a succulent herbaceous tender perennial grown for its basal rosette of soft, flexible, gracefully arching foliage. The long, narrow leaves are multicolored. Each lime green leaf exhibits light blush-red spotting that becomes distinct toward the tip and intensifies in strong ultraviolet light.

Mangave is an intergeneric cross of Manfreda x Agave, giving these hybrids the better growth rate and interesting patterns of Manfreda and the habit and refinement of Agave. 'Bad Hair Day' has a compact habit and a moderate growth rate. A great specimen in the garden, it's a good choice for rock, alpine, and waterwise gardens or for xeriscapes. But it's an excellent container plant, especially in a face planter, inside or outside. In regions with cold winters, the plant will need to be moved inside and should be held at temps above 60°F.

Mangave grows best in a sunny location with dry to average, well-drained soil. Young plants require moderate moisture. Overly wet or extremely dry conditions should be avoided; however, established plants are drought tolerant, and in winter, should be grown slightly dry. But overly wet soil can cause crown and root rots or premature death. The plant is deer and rabbit resistant, and 'Bad Hair Day' is the hardiest mangave to date.
