A rare variety. Night Owl can deepen in color with direct sun and age. It has the same marginal teeth that many Mangave plants have but the teeth on this plant are red.
Mangave are a relatively new phenomenon: a cross between Manfreda and Agave. Additionally, they grow about twice as fast as Agave and are far less spiny to the touch.
This variety will not tolerate a hard frost, but it can overwinter indoors on a sunny window sill or under a grow light. They thrive outdoors in partial to full sun with good drainage, i.e. gritty soil and containers with drainage holes. Mangave can tolerate a bit more shade and water than regular Agave, especially when they are establishing roots.
