Mangave, Purple People Eater

Categories: ,


The Purple People Eater Mangave features a rosette-like growth with silvery-blue foliage and purple spotting that is outlined with gold, orange, and maroon-brown spines. This variety typically reaches a mature size of about 16″ (40cm) tall and 24″ (60cm) wide. It thrives in large terracotta pots or planted in the ground, provided the conditions are ideal—well-draining sandy soil, a location that receives full sunlight for most of the day, and a watering schedule that is regular during the summer and dry in the winter. The Purple People Eater Mangave is drought-tolerant with hardiness zones being 9-11.
