The ultimate small aloe hybrid! With a huge inflorescense for such a small plant that gives it an amazing flower-to-plant ratio, small wonder that its release has been eagerly anticipated by all.
The flower buds, initially covered by large bracts, are pastel red and open a creamy white, sometimes washed in pale orange. The plant is beautifully structured with short grey leaves arranged in a neat rosette that grows to about 25cm in diameter. The leaves are decorated with softish white spines, giving them a warty appearance. It is easy to grow and flower. The flowers open in July (midwinter) and mature plants with 2 inflorescences will have flowers well into August.
It is best suited as a pot plant but may be utilised in open planting as individual plants or a rockery border. The plant needs plenty of sun, particularly when in flower.
