xMangave 'Jaguar' is an amazing agave hybrid with the little-known Manfreda guttata, which hails from 4,000'-8,000' elevation near the town of Tabasco, Mexico (Zacatecas state) and just south. Isn't anything involved with Tabasco going to be excellent? The fast-growing, tight offsetting 2' tall x 3' wide clumps are composed of olive green denticulate (toothed) fleshy leaves that are heavily spotted purple. The tall manfreda-like flower spikes usually occur in September/October. Reportedly, the flowers smell like "that of onions, cooked potato, cooked cabbage, or roast beef." Yeh, right...and I'm a master chef. Our offering is a splendid selection obtained from Dutch master succulent collector Cok Grootscholten.
