This Aloe can grow up to 3M tall, but more typically to 2M in Karin’s Garden. Sprawling succulent with red flower spikes rising above rosettes of toothed leaves.
This is one of the winter flowering Aloes. It is reasonably popular around Motueka, and rightly so, where it provides a welcome dash of colour in mid-winter, along with Kniphofia (Red Hot Pokers) which are also in the Asphodelaceae family.
