An umbrella of up to 160 bright orange coloured racemes spans over this massive aloe in winter. It is equally known for its stunning flower display and its neat and well-structured, grey-green plant.
Tall-stemmed specimens are rare as the rosette is usually simply too bulky to lift off the ground. Older specimens tend to have a trunk that trails along the ground. The plant sometimes produces stem shoots from below the rosette. In the interest of a clean plant shape and plant health these are best removed. Cut them close to the main stem with a sharp secateur. Aloe ‘Dednam Grand’ is a wonderful feature in a large rockery and makes a bold statement, either as a focal point or group planting, in a landscape. It is the perfect companion to Aloe ‘Coral Red’ as the plants are very similar. The contrasting orange and red flower colours complement each other magnificently.
