Aloe ‘Oik’

Sold Out

Sku: 0850660

The brilliantly bumpy Aloe 'Oik' is a dwarf aloe hybrid with fairly short, triangular, bluish to greenish leaves. They are covered with irregular, broad, often multi-pointed 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.
