Gardeners' Notes:

Central Phoenix -- Aloe nobilis does well in my garden. My plant has been in the ground since 2009 and is not covered in the winter. It has partial shade and moderate water. It took a while to bloom -- first bloom in 2013.

I rescued this plant from a dumpster at a Plant Nursery I used to work at. With very minimal care, this plant perked right up. Brighter colors in fall/winter and darker in the summer.

SE exposure and regular water in winter (rainfall) and once a week in summer, twice a week in really hot periods.

Shade in the middle of the day.

One of my favorites in my collection!
