Central Phoenix -- This (2014/15) was only the first winter for my Aloe dhufarensis, and it is under a 6 foot tall fabric cold frame, but the 26F freeze in December didn't seem to bother it. I first saw this plant at the Desert Botanical Garden and had trouble finding somewhere to buy one, finally locating it from Arid Lands in Tucson. My plant is growing in full winter shade and partial summer shade, with several hours of full afternoon sun -- a tough spot. It gets monthly summer water and none in winter. So far it is doing well.

Solitary, stemless plant with very pale leaves of blue-grey, green-grey to nearly white. Not a good shade species.

Aloe dhufarensis is a lovely plant from Oman and a few specimens venturing into Yemen on the Saudi Arabian peninsula. It's a real workhorse here in Arizona. The plants withstand full sun, hot temperatures and even fairly hard freezes. Flowers usually rise in April and continue through June depending on the clone. This is a great plant!
