Add leafy texture to a mixed planting or create a standalone specimen with the Art & Sol™ Bad Hair Day Mangave. This Mangave hybrid has flat, narrow leaves that grow in a rosette, making a lush fountain of foliage. The long, arching leaves are lime green but have flecks of red for a subtle contrast. This plant is a succulent, and as such, it can handle warm summer weather without much care required.

Use the Art & Sol™ Bad Hair Day Mangave in a mixed bed or container. The ornamental foliage provides contrast to flowering plants while introducing texture and an unexpected pop of color. The Art & Sol™ Bad Hair Day Mangave is native to North America and heat and drought tolerant, allowing for use in challenging climates. Deer and rabbits tend to leave the foliage alone, making this plant a good pick in areas prone to animal damage.

Art & Sol™ Bad Hair Day Mangave Care

Mangaves are sun-loving plants, and the vibrant variegation is more pronounced when the plant receives at least 6 hours of sunlight. Mangave plants are also drought tolerant but keep up with watering during a dry period to encourage more vigorous growth. Plant this succulent in an average or low-fertility soil that is sandy and well drained. Ensure the pot has drainage when grown in a container. 

Remove dead or damaged growth as needed. The Art & Sol™ Bad Hair Day Mangave can grow as a perennial in zones 7 through 11, but it is often maintained as an annual. Remove the plant in the fall after the first frost, or bring it indoors to overwinter.

Art & Sol™ Bad Hair Day Mangave Spacing

The Art & Sol™ Bad Hair Day Mangave reaches 8 to 10 inches tall and 18 to 20 inches wide. Space these leafy plants 18 to 20 inches apart to create a dense planting.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
