Manfreda undulata 'Cherry Chocolate Chip'
Common Name: Perennial Deciduous Agave Family: Agavaceae (The Century Plant Family)

Manfreda undulata 'Cherry Chocolate Chip' forms a low, colourful mound of long, undulating, pointed, rubbery, succulent foliage to eight inches high and 2.5 feet wide that is olive green with burgundy and raspberry red spots and a white edge. Three foot spikes produce spidery green and pink flowers but rosettes do not die as happens with its cousin Agave. Offsets are produced slowly. A gorgeous sport of 'Chocolate Chip'. Makes a good houseplant in winter in colder zones.
