IS THIS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL OF THE MANGAVE?

At Scyppan Green, we think so.

A hybrid of Agave and Manfreda, this low maintenance succulent grows in a symmetrical rosette shape with the leaves curling inward creating the look of someone's hands in prayer.

The symmetry gives it a real architectural feel.
