What is the plant
Manfreda virginica, sometimes called "False Aloe", or "Eastern Agave", is a curious cousin of the Agaves. It is characterized by its rosette of lax, succulent leaves, and distinctive inflorescence and flowers. The rosetts vary from about 6" across to as much as about 28" in some plants, with individulal leaves measuring from about 4 to 18 inches long. The leaves are typically uniformily green and may be somewhat glaucous from a waxy "bloom", but there is considerable individual variation in leaf coloration, and different plants may exhibit varying degrees of purplish/brown mottling, with some individuals producing heavily mottled leaves reminiscent of those of Manfreda maculosa.
