Mangave Navajo Princess Physical Characteristics
This plant can be described as being ‘all leaf’. It doesn’t flower much or have a stem, so that description is accurate. The leaves are thick, broad, and rigid. They have a relatively horizontal habit, almost running parallel to the ground.
Moreover, they tend to form a wave-like movement, moving slightly upward at the base, then downward at the center. Next, the tip tends upward again. The foliage is grooved and yellowish at the margin but deep green at the center. There are spines at the margins. These leaves form dense rosettes in which leaves at different levels overlap.

But as time passed, my fascination with these remarkable plants grew, and I gained extensive knowledge about them. Therefore, Succulent City is the blog as you see it is now.
