Lebombo Aloe - Aloe spicata - Fresh Seeds

     
DESCRIPTION

Aloe spicata - Lebombo or Spiked Aloe

This listing is for a pack of 5 seeds.

This is a large growing, generally single stemmed Aloe found on rocky slopes in South Africa and Swaziland. It is also known as the Spiked Aloe, due to the shape and form of it's flowering stems. It is an attractive plant, whether it is in flower or not. The edges of the leaves are fiercely armed with pale coloured spines. The huge flower spikes are very attractive to all sorts of wild life, especially sunbirds which are drawn in by the copious nectar.

Growing to 2 metres tall, the rosettes are a similar diameter. Flowering occurs in summer, although in the Northern hemisphere this may happen towards the latter half of the summer and into the autumn as is the case with many Aloes. The flowers are borne on tall (1 metre or more) simple spikes which are densely covered with yellow flowers (they look bright orange from a distance due to the conspicuous stamens that protrude from each flower. The flowers may be followed by seed pods where pollination has occurred .

The plant may flower in 5 years from seed in it's natural state, but in the far better conditions it will find in cultivation, this is likely to happen much more quickly. Despite its natural habitat, is not reliably hardy so should be grown in a pot or pan and brought in during cold weather or grown as a greenhouse specimen or as a houseplant.
