Altman Plants

The brilliantly bumpy Aloe 'Oik' is a dwarf aloe hybrid by breeder Karen Zimmerman.

Introduced by the Huntington Botanical Gardens:

"It has fairly short, triangular, bluish to greenish leaves, depending on the season, covered with irregular, broad, often multi-pointed and therefore ragged-looking, pinkish teeth on the margins while the surface teeth are conical or merged to form raised dashes. Leaf apices are often bilaterally compressed with jagged teeth reminiscent of some medieval weapon. The word “oik," in its mildest connotation, is British slang for a rambunctious child." Reddish highlights develop when Aloe 'Oik' is given plenty of sun. Great in its own decorative container or in a dish garden with other succulents.

Part of what makes succulents so fascinating are the myriad ways they express themselves throughout the year, depending on light, season, temperature, soil, and hydration. For those and other reasons, the plants you receive may not look exactly as they appear on our website.
