KyWoods Melbourne, KY (Zone 6a) Ooohhh, how I wish I could grow such wonders. I do have a couple of the small varieties as houseplants, but... Incredible pictures of incredible plants! I had no idea about all those wonderful flowers.
Does the inexpensive one commonly sold everywhere as a "burn plant" ever bloom? I've had mine for years, and it makes babies, but not blooms.
palmbob Tarzana, CA (Zone 9b) yes, it blooms, but not terribly interesting flowers.
melody Benton, KY (Zone 7a) Zone envy here too. I'm amazed at how stunning these are!
The Kniphofia has somewhat similar flowers to a few of your beauties, but the huge diversity of these aloes are amazing!
Thanks for another great article. Can't wait for the rest!
Sashagirl Davenport, IA (Zone 5a) This was a very exciting and informative article!
It opened up a whole new realm of plants for me. I've always been familiar with our "burn plant", but had no idea these other beauties existed.
Bravo! Well done!
LouC Desoto, TX (Zone 8a) They have said it all for me. Thank you for yet another wonderful and informative article.
Did not know these others even existed.
grampapa Wheatfield, NY (Zone 6a) Yes, indeed. Excellent article. Thoroughly enjoyed all the pics! I had no idea that there were that many varieties of aloe or that it flowered so beautifully. I, too, have the familiar house plant.
Thanks for the enlightenment. Also enjoy your artwork.
Kelli L.A. (Canoga Park), CA (Zone 10a) Great pictures! Aloes are one of my favorite plant genera.
