Hardy aloe! Finally, an aloe we can grow outside that survives in spite of heat and wet winters. These large, succulent perennials produce 3' tall candelabra-like panicles throughout the warm months. The pinkish-orange tubular flowers hang downward, adding an exotic look to any landscape. Established colonies of this plant have survived our last two colder than average winters, tolerating temperatures down to the mid teens F. The plants lost all the exposed, above ground portions of the plant but returned well by mid May. Established plants have thick underground stems that survive the cold and produce new shoots that emerge in late spring. In milder winters, where the temperature fall only into the mid 20's, only the outer ranks of leaves freeze off and the plant regrows from the core of the surviving rosettes. Note: Offered here are bare-root divisions.
