A strong flowering little hybrid aloe for containers and frost free gardens. It produces its branched inflorescences from early to mid winter, and it does so with gusto.
The name is derived from the fact that, very often, the inflorescence is too heavy for the dainty peduncle and it tends to droop a little. This characteristic can be put to good use in containers where the somewhat unique flowering style combines well with other upright flowers. The racemes are slightly two-toned as the darker coloured buds open a shade or two brighter orange. The plant hardly exceeds 20cm in height but the inflorescence grows to nearly 3 times that size.
