Synonym Names:

Family: Liliaceae

Location: 5/15/02

A beautiful Rhodesian native that has a shrubby growth habit. It develops some unusually rich red tones when water is withheld. Provides a colorful focal point in the xeriscape. This medium-sized aloe suckers readily with many upright stems and grows in open rosettes one to two feet in diameter. The leaves turn a beautiful coppery red in sunny weather and drought. Without bright sun or especially if overwatered, this aloe will remain bright apple-green. Orange-red flowers come in winter to spring in Southern California and are held a foot above the foliage. They are very attractive to nectar-seeking birds. The seed pods that follow are interesting as well. This aloe makes a nice specimen planting and provides a striking foliage color contrast in the succulent garden.  Information by: Cacti.com
