    Description

Aloe hereroensis - Sand Aloe

This listing is for a pack of 25 seeds of this spectacular Aloe.

This is a low growing, medium sized aloe up to 50cm across the rosette, solitary or with only 2 or 3 rosettes in a clump. It has smooth pale blue-green leaves that curve upward and are spotted or barred. The margins are well armed with dark small sharp spines. 

The flowers vary in color from brownish-orange to pink and are broad at their base and narrow near the mouth. They appear late in the season where the plant is grown in the Northern Hemisphere, just as water is being withheld for the winter rest.

Aloe hereroensis is found on rocky and sandy soils in dry areas of the Northern Cape and Orange Free State in South Africa north into Namibia and Angola. In Afrikaans it is known as the sandaalwyn - which translates to Sand Aloe. The soil it is found on is alkaline, so this should be the aim in cultivation

Easy from seed, as are most aloes, it is also marginally hardy (-2 to -4 Deg C, much colder will result in black spots on the leaves).  It can be grown in a pot for use in house or conservatory and will appreciate a spell outside in partial shade during the summer.  It can be watered and fed freely late spring through to late summer, but at that point it should be allowed to dry out and be kept somewhat cooler - these are the conditions it needs to produce the spectacular spikes of flowers.
