    Drought tolerant, can take light irrigation in hot summers
  • Maintenance:

  • Uses:  
    Rock gardens, succulent and cactus gardens and xeriscape. This plant makes a handsome container plant when young (however leaves retain a bright green color in lower light settings). Leaves are brittle and can easily be broken so plan plant's location accordingly. Good for attracting nectar loving birds and insects when in bloom.
  • Propagation:  
    Remove and replant rooted offshoots. Seeds can be collected from pods and sown.
  • Special notes:  
    This medium-sized aloe suckers readily with many upright stems and grows in open rosettes one to two feet in diameter. The leaves turn a beautiful coppery red in sunny weather and drought. Without bright sun or especially if overwatered, this aloe will remain bright apple-green. Orange-red flowers come in winter to spring in Southern California and are held a foot above the foliage. They are very attractive to nectar-seeking birds. The seed pods that follow are interesting as well. This aloe makes a nice specimen planting and provides a striking foliage color contrast in the succulent garden.
