Aloe brevifolia - Napier
Wild forms! Often what is in cultivation for a species is one clone, introduced years back and then divided over and over. That one clone becomes so widespread that we often use it to define the species, when in reality the species is much more variable than a single clone. We feel that this is the case with Aloe brevifolia. This offering of A. brevifolia is from wild collected seed. The rosettes tend to be smaller, cluster more and have more prickly spines on the undersides of the leaves. A valuable impulse of genetic diversity into the USA brevifolia collection.
