Hello,
I am trying to add Mangave Aztec King to the data base but when I entered Manfreda x Agave (intergeneric cross) as genus the system would not accept it. Can you help me please? The info on the plant is available thru https://www.waltersgardens.com. Thank you.

Thank You! @pirl. I thought I was contacting admin directly when I wrote the post but somehow it was posted on the forum. D'Oh!

Debbie, us plant admins check this forum regularly anyway, so even if you don't call a particular plant admin, one of us will see it (usually within a day).

You cannot use a hybrid formula as the name of a genus. It has to be a valid genus name. Formerly this would have been Mangave, but it looks like Manfreda has been merged into Agave.

So the genus is Agave, the cultivar is Aztec King and the common name would be Mangave.
