Description

Known as the "climbing aloe," as it tends to scramble upward, often spiralling as it climbs. Offsets prolifically to form dense mats. Bright orange tubular flowers on tall spikes appear in late winter and early spring. Flowers are interesting as they are bright yellow inside, but orange outside. Hummingbirds frequently visit aloes and many other succulents to drink nectar. Excellent in rock gardens or as landscape plants. Porous soil with excellent drainage. Bright light to morning sun. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Protect from frost.


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.
