Ooh-eee, what a sight to see! Thankfully this plant is not carnivorous, but it is purple - and silver, and plum, and blue-green depending on the sunlight and angle.

Pair him with vibrant yellow and soft silver plants to accentuate the changing shades. Those beautiful leaves need lots of light to keep their colour, so find a sunny spot for this one.

Mangave Purple People Eater

APPEARANCE : Purple People Eater is a hardy succulent with thick, sturdy foliage. Forming a neat rosette, the leaves are blue-green with reddish-purple speckles. Leaf edges are lined with little spikes, and the leaf tip is sharp too. Mangave® is a new range of Agave hybrids, inheriting big bold shapes and resilient sturdiness from one parent, and fast growth and a wide range of colours and markings from the other.
USE FOR : Accent and specimen planting, landscaping and poolside, waterwise gardens, also suited to containers.
CLIMATE : Drought hardy. Needs a temperature over 15C
PLANTING : Plant in full sun to part shade in free-draining soil, ideally sandy and light. Mangaves like lots of light; too little light will reduce leaf colour as well as growth rate. If you are planting in a pot choose one slightly wider than the width of the plant.
CARE : Water regularly but sparingly for faster growth, especially during the warmer months; water very little to keep your Mangave small. Fertilise yearly using a slow release fertiliser for succulents.
HEIGHT & WIDTH :  30 - 60 cm H x 30 - 60 cm W.
YOUR PLANTS : These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide.
