It naturally forms clumps from suckering and produces orange flower spikes in winter.
They are a very good choice for xeriscape and dry or gravel gardens and will reward with the best colour when they receive more sun.
Soil: Very well draining, light and sandy soils are best and they are most happy in rockeries.
Maintenance: Low water requirements, otherwise very self-sufficient.
Break off pups (side-shoots) and re-plant to propagate.
Diseases: Mealybugs can be a occasional problem.
Other Species: 300 species in the Aloe genus, largely from Africa including trees, shrubs and perennials.
