Gardeners' Notes:

Phew! Took me a while to identify my new addition to my container-garden! :) These are compact, grow tightly together in clumps and reveal all kinds of lovely colours in their leaves. They seem to make offsets, but not many. My Mother-In-Law has had them in her garden for years and they seem to grow pretty slowly. I have no idea if these colourful aloes flower yet, but I'm hoping! They seem pretty hardy and are very drought-resistant (they have to be in Mum-In-Law's yard!), and I'm looking forward to seeing how my two will grow.

Very colorful stemmless, spotted aloe from Uganda. This species develops a full variety of colors in winter from orange, purple, pink, green, turquoise to maroon. And that's just the leaves. I don't know when this species flowers or what they look like (yet).
