Availability: 5 available

Pack of 5 seeds.

This is a clump forming aloe which has a tendency to ramble so is ideal for growing in a large flat or raised bed where it can make the most of the available space. Numerous small rosettes of slender leaves give this aloe both its common and Latin names. The flowers are borne on simple unbranched spikes and are either yellow or orange in colour depending on the locale.Growing to 3 metres tall, the rosettes are about half that in 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 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. It 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.
