Aloe ‘Meringue’

The large creamy white racemes dusted with pink look like they belong on a much larger plant. Its multiple inflorescences is certainly this small aloe’s main claim to fame. ‘Meringue’ can have flowers from autumn to late winter.

The plant has light grey-green leaves with smallish spines. It does not often produce stem shoots and does not readily split its rosette at maturity. A nice feature is that it can hold its own as a pot subject as well as the open rockery. Plant with plenty of compost in the soil.

In full sun the pink of the flower buds is more accentuated. Older plants may have a short stem.
