  • Special notes:  
    This is a small aloe that forms a single rosette of blue-green blushed white leaves that eventually form a slender stem to 3 feet. It has gray-green, nearly glaucous leaves that are triangular in shape with tiny teeth along the leaf margins. It grows in spring and summer and remains dormant in winter. Older plants bloom in spring to summer with many branched racemes. The peach-orange colored flowers come when the plant is more mature. This aloe needs protection from hard frosts and requires very good drainage in cool weather weather.
